P.Jarrett - Lost & Found
Upside-down in what looks like an allotment, apparently on March 27, 1919, S.E.5a C1134 was probably written off. The precise cause of the accident is as yet unknown, but the aircraft appears to have overturned during a forced landing on rough ground, possibly as a result of engine failure.
A collision with a fence has almost certainly rendered S.E.5a C5316 a write-off. It is not known whether its unfortunate pilot escaped unharmed. The “B I" marking aft of the fuselage roundel suggests that the aircraft may have been serving with the No 1 School of Aerial Fighting at Ayr.
