Incident Reports

Date: July 31, 1924
Personnel: unknown
A Deruluft F-13, serial no. D-251.
Location: near Spilve
Details:
  • The aircraft was on a regularly scheduled flight from Spilve/Riga to Revel when its engine failed shortly after takeoff. At that moment the aircraft was directly over the Daugava River and still at low altitude, so the pilot made a successful forced landing on Vejzaksala Island.
