HC Deb 05 June 1990 vol 173 c426W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will provide details of the accident involving an 1F15 aircraft during the recent low flying exercise Elder Forest.

Mr. Neubert

A United States Air Force F25 aircraft, participating in the United Kingdom defence exercise, Elder Forest, crashed into the sea approximately 20 miles east of Grimsby on 25 April 1990. The pilot ejected successfully. A United States Air Force accident investigation has been convened in the normal way. It would be premature to speculate about the possible causes of the accident.
