16.73 - Hereditary Grand Duke Georg his wife Princess Cecilia, two sons and mother Princess Eleoner were
killed in an aeroplane accident near Ostende. Cecilia was eight months pregnant at the time of the crash and the baby's body was discovered amongst the wreckage. The party were on their way to Croydon Airport to attend the wedding of his brother
Prince Ludwig of Hesse and by Rhine to Margaret Geddes. A total of eight passengers and three crew members were killed in the crash.
The Evening Independent of 23 November 1937 (a Florida based newspaper) included a report from the newspaper Midi-Journal which had said a Belgian inquiry into last week's airplane disaster at Ostend indicated that the pilot attempted to land because the Archduchess of Hesse bei Rhein , one of the passengers, was giving birth to a baby. The body of the new-born infant was found in the wreckage..
It was also reported a search of the immediate crash area led to the recovery of jewellery which had been flung from the baggage of the Grand Ducal party.
On 20 December 1937 it was reported that the superintendent of Ostend airport is on a charge of manslaughter following the crash possibly due to the non dispatch of a radio message to the airplane pilot to travel direct to Croydon due to fog conditions. I'm not aware of the outcome of this manslaughter charge.
