Aircraft Accident Files - RCAF

Post by Temujin » Mon May 14, 2018 6:55 pm

Aircraft Accident Files - RCAF for wartime aircraft accidents in Canada are held as microfilm copies by the Government Archives and Records Disposition Division of the National Archives of Canada (RG 24, E 14; Microfilm Reels C-5929 to C-5939 and T -12338 to T-12357). These include aircraft with Canadian serial numbers, as well as those with RAF serials used in Canada.

These include aircraft with Canadian serial numbers, as well as those with RAF serials used in Canada. Typical files include: a Flying Accident Signal Report, with the initial report of the accident, recording the unit and aircraft number, the aircraft occupants, and the date, place, time. nature and possible cause of the accident; and the Investigating Officer's Report or the Court's Proceedings, which record additional details of the accident and the findings. The latter reports often include in their appendices, excerpts from the airframe and engine log books, witness statements, maps, plans, photographs and correspondence.

These files are avialable on Heritage Canadiana’s site.

Below are direct links to some to these files:

Examples of files available on the records above. The records contain accident reports, investigations with witness documents, etc.

The files below are quick “screen shots” and hard to read. The files ON the Heritage Canadiana site can be enlarged and are much clearer
