Second Lieut. Aat Sucharitkul (Siamese) Killed with RAF 29th October 1931All A Siamese, Second Lieut. Aat Sucharitkul, who was undergoing routine training from R.A.F. aerodrome at Hawkinge, was killed when his aeroplane (an AW Siksin) crashed on 29th October 1931. The crash actually happened at Folkestone and he was attached to 25 Sqn.. I am trying to trace an ID.. From an old file I have 3 possibilities: 27 Oct J8881 AW Siskin Folkestone 29 Oct J8882 AW Siskin unknown (Duxford?) 29 Oct RAF AW Siskin Hawkinge I actually think all 3 incidents may be 'mixed up' or at least the last 2? Can anyone with access to the AB J Serials book please provide a history of J8881 and J8882, or the missing 3rd one.. Please look at the back for 'unknown' accidents as I think the confusion lies in the fact that he was not RAF! Or provide a possible crew for the 3 incidents above Many Thanks Paul ....Read More.paulmcmillan on 8th June 2010 11:27:46

I thibk the first and third on your list are mixed up and the second one is separate. Malcolm ....Read More.malcolm_raf on 8th June 2010 12:06:53
Second Lieut. Aat Sucharitkul (Siamese) Killed with RAF 29th October 1931Hi Paul Sorry J8882 was repaired locally and continued in use by the Met Flt On checking the back page there is an unidentified crash for a Siskin of 25 Sqn in which Lt Aat Sucharitkul is supposed to have been killed on 29 Nov 1931 so perhaps this is the one that has been confused with J8881 on 29 Oct?
