    Default Aviation Accidents at St Mawgan

    Hello All,
    This is a bit of a curved ball!
    I have been asked, by a colleague on another forum (aviation scientists) that I infest, if there is a list of fatal accidents involving aircraft within the bounds of (or near) St Mawgan? If there is no list, I presume it would be a big job to start such a list from scratch?
    This is not urgent, but any ‘steers’ as to which way to go would be much appreciated.
    TIA

    Peter,

    Initially opened as Trebelzue Big Field airfield in 1933, the airfield was requisitioned by the RAF in 1939 and renamed RAF Trebelzue as a satellite for RAF St Eval (which became operational in Oct 1939). RAF Trebelzue was renamed RAF St Mawgan in Feb 1943, having temporarily hosted short-lived detachments the previous year.

    Which begs the question. Is your inquirer seeking advice solely about aircraft based RAF St Mawgan, or back to 1933 when flying first started on the civilian airfield? Does he want information about nearby St Eval (2.5 miles distant) as well?

    There are a number of links but these are useful for basic history

    https://www.rafweb.org/Stations/Stat...tm#St%20Mawgan

    I don't think there have been any fatal accidents since becoming a civilian airfield in 2008.

    Sorry to muddy the waters.

    Peter,

    I have lists of a/c write offs and casualty details for as many military incidents as I have been able to find in published sources. Is there a specific query here?
