The student pilot was briefed to fly a solo general handling exercise over marshland on the south side of the Thames Estuary. He had not returned to the airfield by the time the aircraft’s fuel was known to be exhausted and a search and rescue operation was initiated. Approximately 24 hours later the crew of the Police Air Support Unit helicopter located the aircraft and the fatally injured pilot. There were no eye-witnesses and no recorded evidence. The investigation was unable to determine the cause of the accident.
