P.A. DUNEDIN, Dec 6. A collision by two training aircraft with wires across the Molyneux River at Balclutha, on Nov 9, resulted in four instructors stationed at the Taieri air station appearing before a general court-martial at the station. The aircraft remained airworthy after the collision, but was damaged by contact with the wires. All four accused held the rank of flying officer. The two designated as the pilots of the aircraft pleaded guilty to charges of low flying and endangering the lives of the occupants, while the two described as captains denied failing to exercise adequate control and supervision. The pilots were Flying Officers Seaton George Sharp and Garfield Blackie McGill, who were each charged that, while the pilots of aircraft, they did with neglect and without authority fly at such a height as to cause the aircraft to collide with electric power or telegraph lines causing damage to aircraft amounting in one case to £23 15s and in the other to £28 10s. They were also charged with flying in a manner likely, to cause loss of life or bodily injury to the occupants of the aircraft. The captains of the aircraft, Flying Officer James Stanley Wigelsworth and Flying Officer Edgar Henry James Wilson, were each charged with neglect of good order and discipline in that, while the captains of the aircraft, they failed to exercise adequate control and supervision of the pilots, as a result of which they flew at such a height as to cause them to collide with electric power and telegraph lines. Group Captain C. E. Kay, commanding officer at Wigram, presided Wing Commander W. R. Kofoed commanding officer at Taieri, said the physical and mental strain imposed on instructors was very great and he could understand an officer desiring to indulge in low flying or some other form ot aerobatics when away from instruction. He did not condone the offence, but the strain and monotony of the job were appreciated by the authorities. He would be very reluctant to lose any of the accused from his command After hearing further evidence, the court intimated that its findings and sentences would be promulgated later by the Air Department.
