Incident Reports

Date: December 3, 1936
Survivors: none
Fatalities: Sargeant Alfred Danders
Aircraft Involved: Bristol Bulldog # 78
Location: Riga (over Mezaparks / Jaunmilgravis)
Details:
  • Danders was practicing aerobatics over Mezaparks, in Riga. His aircraft went into a spin from which he did not recover.
  • Noting that he received his basic flight training in a brief sport fliers training program it has been suggested that inadequate pilot training was a factor in this crash.
