The circumstances connected with the accident referred to have been fully investigated by the inspector of accidents, but a complete report has not yet been made. It may be stated, however, that the primary cause of the accident appears to have been the attempt to land in a field which was unsuitable for that, purpose. The conditions under which flying can lawfully be practised in this country are laid down in the Air Navigation Act, 1920, and the Air Navigation Order, 1923, as amended by various subsequent Orders. The enforcement of these Regulations is a matter for the police, who are acquainted with their terms.
