Setting off on November 15th, 1957, an Aquila Airways’ Solent crashed in the Isle of Wight, England. With a total death toll of 45 people, the crash was the second worst in United Kingdom. The Solent plane had departed from Southampton, on its way to Las Palmas and Madeira through Lisbon. The crew had radioed feathering of propeller number 4, and in the course of returning, the plane devastatingly collided into an abandoned chalk pit.

An inquiry held by Air Accidents Investigation Branch of the Ministry Transport concluded that the collision was due to engine No.3 and No. 4 stopping due to electrical failure. 50 years on, a memorial service was held in Brook, Isle of Wight, 2007, in memory of the lost lives of the fatal crash.
