    Default Sea plane River Humber 28 March 1927

    Can anyone the identity of a seaplane reported in The Times as crashing in the River Humber on 28th March 1927. Was it RAF or civilian registered ? Who was the pilot ?

    thanks Rich Allenby

    I posted this question on the Air Britain Forum, Vic Smithg replied:

    "Lloyd's Casualty Reports lists a Blackburn as crashing off Brough, but on the
    26th March 1927, with no other details."

    So we know the type now (as long as these are not 2 separate incidents)

    Paul, many thanks for reposting this on AB.

    I'd guessed its something to do with Brough and the type is a new addition for me, thanks.

    Much appreciated. Rich

    Vic Smith - Who (I think) used to work a Lloyds and is on AB-IX either has been through them or looked through them or has copies, they might be available for public viewing in the archives

    Malcolm Fillmore on AB-IX has provided a possible candidate

    "This is interesting. I, too, have no accident record for this matter
    but I am aware that the Air Ministry often did not report on accidents
    happening to Reserve School machines. The only candidate I have is that
    we do not seem to have a fate for Blackburn Dart G-EBKG. This was
    operated by Blackburn's North Sea Aerial & General Transport, which
    itself ran the Reserve Flying School.

    G-EBKG had a CofA renewal 3.3.27 and its registration was cancelled
    23.1.28 - implying an accident."
