    Default AiB AVIA Class Reports

    Where doubt lay in the cause for an aircraft loss or it was noted that a trend of losses was occurring then the Accident Investigation Branch could be tasked with investigation by the Air Ministry.

    Pre-war the AiB had mostly been concerned with civil air losses but as a part of the Air Ministry it also had a watching brief for military air losses. During the war period it was mainly concerned with military crashes needing more investigative skill than a Court of Inquiry could provide.

    Later Form 765C, Form 1180 and Form 412 all have a section where it was noted that an AiB Investigation was taking place into the accident.

    Not all AiB reports have survived, most of 1944 is missing, but those that were saved are stored at The National Archives, Kew, London under the civil AVIA 5/Series.

    Typically of 3 to 4 pages they can contain photos of recovered wreckage as well as witness statements.

    Default Avia5/19

    The TNA index for AVIA 5 has a number of errors in the transcription of serial numbers that prevent easy searches.

    The following is very much a work in progress for AVIA5/19, the first wartime file, to provide an index of:

    The file varies from a single page file note to say no investigation required to a report of several pages.

    I would estimate that approx 50% of the W files are single page.

    Many pages have been removed and quite a few loose in the front of the document are not associated with the rest of their report.

    I am attempting to split the file into the W reports and to marry the loose pages with the original W report. This will make my index and photo file a better research tool than the original AVIA5/19 held at the TNA.

    outside the scope of the thread slightly but can anyone account for a crash report in AVIA or else where for

    DH84 G-ACAP 26 March 1936

    Commercial Air Hire aircraft on AA co-operation with the Army. Crashed near Stoneycross, Lyndhurst? I can; tfind it from a simple search of the AVIA files. Found some mention in Flight Magazine.

    I have a quote that says " Few reports of investigations of accidents survive for the period between 1936 and 1946, although information may sometimes be found in Air Ministry Civil Aviation Files in AVIA 2, and the Air Ministry Correspondence (AIR 2). "

    However I have a reference that the accident file for this is

    C333 26.3.1936 DH Dragon G-ACAP Lyndhurst

    Hi Gents,

    Report C333 should have been in AVIA 5/18

    But it is listed as Wanting which means missing.

    The Card Index from 1918 to the 1970s is AVIA 126.

    This tells you the index for the crash eg CXXX, WXXX or SXXXXX

    Armed with this index number then a ferret of the files is in order as the TNA Catalogue index has only picked up files where the reference is clearly printed.

    Loose leaf pages from a report may be misfiled in the folder but like I said for AVIA 5 it is all a bit hit and miss.

    Thanks Guys, it missing then most likely. It's the pilots grandson who was asking. Aeroplane magazine in 1936 had a long text extra from the inquest so we found that at least. Via google books and some digging.
