On This Day

 

Prince William,

ninth in line to the Throne,

was killed at the beginning

of the Goodyear air race

 

PRINCE WILLIAM of Gloucester was killed yesterday when his light aircraft crashed soon after take-off from Halfpenny Green airport near Wolverhampton at the start of the Goodyear air race.

His co-pilot, Mr Vyrell Mitchell, also died after the Piper Cherokee banked at the end of the runway, hit a tree, lost a wing and narrowly missed a house as it crashed into a bank in a lane a mile from the airfield.

The petrol tank exploded and the aircraft was engulfed in flames.

Three boys ran across a field and tried to pull the tail off in a rescue effort. “But it was no good,” one of them said. “We had to go back because of the heat.”

The Queen has ordered family mourning until the day of the funeral. Her Majesty and Princess Anne are not going to the Olympic Games at Munich today as arranged, Buckingham Palace said.

Prince William, a bachelor, aged 30, was ninth in succession to the Throne. He was the second member of the Royal Family to die in an air crash: 30 years ago the Duke of Kent was killed when his Sunderland flying boat crashed in the north of Scotland, on the way to active service in Iceland.

The Piper Cherokee Arrow in which Prince William was flying is one of the commonest light aircraft made today.
