DIVEU TO EARTH. INQUEST ON KILLED AVIATOR. Remarkable evidence vra, given at the inquest respecting the Salisbury Plain avi- ation disaster, in which George Launcelot Gippe, aged 20, of Sycamore Lodge, Farn- mouth, was killed. and Mr. Merriman, a Briatoi school instructor, was injured. Henri M. Jullerot, monager of the Brio tol Flying School, said the machine made a riharp left-hand turn jn its own length. This was always dangerous. It practically stood still, the left wing oame down, and then the heavy part, the nose, dived to earth- Witness added that the sharp turn at » height of 30ft. to 36ft. from the ground wa3 either an error of judgment or a result of a nervous movement of the controls. He had seen many falls oi this kind without serious injury. Mr. Merriman jumped from the machine, but feU down dazed. M. Jul- lerot said he ran to him and asked what had happened. He replied, I cannot tell. The machine was going very steadily. I think Qipps must have interfered with my oon- trol. In reply to questions M. Jullerot said modern machines required finer controls than the old type of biplanes, and a ner- vous slip of the foot on the rudder-ba* might have caused the sharp turn and brought about the accident. )1r. Merriinae was not aware that Gipps had been killed The inquiry was adjourned for a month for Mr. Merriman's evidence.
