    Default Mystery Bale-Out October 21st 1935 RAF College Cranwell Bulldog K2166

    After the last mystery was finally solved. I have another one for you all

    On October 21st 1935 Cranwell Bulldog K2166 a aircraft from RAF Cranwell went in to an uncontrollable spin, causing the pilot to abandon. Can anyone ID the pilot? Many Thanks

    Note: This was a busy period fo RAF Cranwell accidents and this incident was sandwiched between two fatal incidents and so maybe not so 'newsworthy'

    on October 17, 1935 P/O Fisher bailed out too low and was killed in Bulldog K1693 at Brauncewell, Lincolnshire after aircraft got into Spin

    on October 22, 1935 Flight Cadet Robert Harold Winter crashed and was killed at Sleaford, Linc in Armstrong Atlas TM K1478 after he to got into a spin.

    Paul,

    Nothing in The Times other than including it as one of three accidents involving Cranwell aeroplanes on 23 October - the two fatalities were named. There was an obituary for Fisher on 22 October.
