    Default Jan to June 1935 Fatal Hawker Horsley Crash ??

    In AIR 10/1581 I have now identified all fatal aircraft accidents except one

    1) is a Horsley crash in which "failed to pull out of a dive and flew into sea" pilot had 273 hours on type and 534 in total and had been qualified for 2 years 6 months

    Can anyone supply the date and who for this?


    The only other issues not sorted are someone walking into airscrew and killed. I have one to naval seaman resolved. the other involves a Victoria

    Thanks

    Paul

    Victoira airscrew is this incident (also reported as 28th April 1935)


    KILLED BY AIRSCREW
    F / O . M. C. Moore, of No.. 216 (Bomber Transport) Squadron,
    R.A.F., which is on a flight from Cairo to the Cape, was accidentally
    killed on April 29 at Tororo, Uganda. His machine, when landing,
    overran the aerodrome and came to a stop in long grass. F/O.
    Moore, after getting out, walked into one of the revolving airscrews,
    and was so severely injured that he died soon afterwards.
