Sicele O'Brien (1887-1931)
"It is with extreme regret that we have to announce the death, as the result of a flying accident on June 18th, of Miss Sicele O'Brien and Mrs Gordon Gallien. They had arrived at Hatfield aerodrome from Brough, in a Blackburn "Bluebird", en route for Hanworth and had just taken-off to resume the journey, when the machine was seen to nose-dive in a spin. It crashed into a hayfield outside the aerodrome and immediately burst into flames. The machine was completely destroyed within a few minutes and it was impossible to rescue the unfortunate occupants. The bodies were charred beyond recognition."
