THE father of a young pilot who died in a mid-air crash was due to meet the Attorney General Dominic Grieve today to ask if he can reopen the case into the death of his son.

Alan Beagley has spoken of his pain and frustration of three years searching for answers on the two aircraft collision which killed his son James, 34, and four others.

The crown prosecution service is headed by the Director of Public Prosecutions who answers to Beacosnfield MP Mr Grieve, the Government's top lawyer.

Mr Beagley, 63, of Strathcona Close, Flackwell Heath, said he and his family had been denied “closure”.

James, of Churchill Drive, Marlow Bottom, was a passenger in a Cessna 402 aircraft when it collided with a small solo-piloted plane in 2008.

Mr Beagley previously told of the “absolute despair” that the death of his son, who lived in Marlow with his brother Neal, had caused.

He said this week the prolonged investigations had been extremely difficult for him, his family and friends.

“We have been frustrated at every turn, We have had over three years of lurching from report to another,” he said.

The Crown Prosecution Service told him in a letter it would not bring any charges for gross negligence manslaughter or corporate manslaughter because it found insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of prosecution.

The Air Accident Investigation Branch, part of the Department for Transport, has written a report on the collision, which occurred in uncontrolled airspace near Coventry Airport.

The report stated, among its conclusions: “Insufficient or inaccurate information was provided to the pilots, which did not assist them in fulfilling their duty to take all possible measures to avoid collisions with other aircraft.”

It made one safety recommendation surrounding information air traffic services provide to pilots.

Mr Beagley blasted: “It's infuriating that we have a 54 page report here which is basically ended up in a safety recommendation

"We have been around in several big circles.”

However, the AAIB said in statement: “The AAIB mandate is to investigate all accidents and incidents impartially and its findings are based on the facts that are available.

“The sole objective of the investigation is the prevention of accidents and incidents, not to apportion blame or liability.”

Despite over three years passing since the accident, there has still been no inquest, due to the investigations, but this should now happen.

“The inquest will at least allow us to all to have closure.

"We have never had the opportunity to start that repair and recovery process and move forward,” Mr Beagley said.
