The 1936 Jersey Air Disaster occurred on 31 July 1936 when the Cloud of Iona, a Saro Cloud flying boat of Guernsey Airways, went missing on a flight between Guernsey and Jersey. All ten on board were assumed to have died.

Accident


Guernsey Airways was formed in 1934 as a subsidiary of Jersey Airways to operate services between St Peter Port, Guernsey and St Brelade's Bay in Jersey.Wickstead 2014, p.249 On 31 July 1936 the Cloud of Iona failed to arrive in Jersey. It had departed around 19:00 and the journey should have taken 20 minutes. The weather was poor and visibility was reduced by drizzle. At 22:00 the St Helier lifeboat was launched to search for the flying boat, it searched all night without finding anything. In the morning a number of French military aircraft from Cherburg and Royal Air Force aircraft joined the search from the air, an RAF seaplane reported sighting fabric and plywood in the sea. On 2 August three motorboats from Jersey returned with wreckage including wood, cushions and fabric which was identified as coming from the Isle of Iona. An official from Channel Islands Airways the parent company of both Jersey and Guernsey Airways made a statement:

Sighting


Two passengers on the Great Western Railway mailboat St Helier reported seeing an aircraft in the sea about half a mile away from the ship. They reported that the aircraft propellers were turning and they expected it was going to take off. The two passengers crossed to the other side of the boat as they realised the aircraft would pass across the bows. They didn't see the aircraft on the other side and assumed it had taken off in the mist. Officials checked the bow of the ship to see if it had hit the flying boat but no marks were found.

Wreckage and bodies


On 3 August it was reported that an 18 ft long wing section had been found near Minquiers Reef and a float had washed up on a French beach at Annonville. The following few days bodies were washed ashore on the French coast. Two weeks later, on the 14 August, two Jersey fisherman found the wreckage (fuselage and engines) of the Cloud of Iona on the rocks 10 miles from Jersey.

Aircraft


The aircraft involved was a twin-engined Saro Cloud flying boat built in 1932 and registered as G-ABXW.Jackson 1974, p. 291 It was original operated by British Flying Boats Limited who named it the Cloud of Iona, before it was sold to Guernsey Airways in September 1934.

Aftermath


The inter-island seaplane service was suspended and did not operate again after the accident. The Cloud of Iona was to have been fitted with wireless equipment the week after the accident. In January 1937 the airline was prosecuted, in that they permitted the machine to be used on July 29, 30 and 31 without an approved wireless installation. They were fined £300.

Casualties


All on board were killed, they included five English holidaymakers and three people from Guernsey as well as the two crew (a pilot and mechanic).
