    Saunders Roe Skeeter Accidents


    YearVersionC/N
    1953 Skeeter 3 W.14/4 UK WF113 : after further resonance reduction research and modification, the aircraft destroyed itself in May 1953, during a ground run trial due to resonance. This was the catalyst for the Ministry of Supply removing further funding from the whole Skeeter programme, until SARO had resolved the problem.
        1 C/N found.
