Who killed the other Prince William?

He died supposedly in an airoplane accident at the age of thirty at Farnborough taking part in a race in August, 1972.   Fourth in line to the throne, he was in love with Zsuzsi Starkloff, a twice divorced Hungarian model and the Royal Family didn’t want another scandal to undermine their public standing, with the scars of Edward 8th abdication over Wallis Simpson still much in memory.

If he made an error flying his plane too low as claimed by the accident investigators, why was the starboard wing already on fire before the plane crashed?  The official report is below.  Look at the picture seconds before he crashed.

The plane he was flying failed to lift very far off the ground, banked suddenly to the left and crashed on take off.  Knowing how many Royals have been killed since, you could well imagine that William was killed by ‘the system’ as was Diana, and Lord Mountbatten.

The Queen had told him to ‘follow his heart’.   The Duke Of Edinburgh, however, was totally against Prince Williams’ relationship with Zsuzsi Starkloff.  Like Diana, he knew an ‘accident’ was a definite possibility.

From a review of Giles St Aubyn, his official biography –  Like all the Gloucesters he was more introvert and kind of shy. He comes across as a very likeable person. Quite sad was the passage when the Prince was talking about being afraid of an accident happening to him as this would be devastating for his mother. Well, exactly that happened.

Like Diana, he preferred to die than have his life ruled by the Royals.

The official accident investigation makes no mention of any radio contact between the aircraft and the ground.  As the flight was being observed and monitored by officials, it seems odd there is no mention of any communication either from the cockpit or to the cockpit.

    A bit like the Duke of Kent (which is in England :)) ) Very good account in ‘Double Standards’ by Lynn Picknett and Stephen Prior.

    “why was the starboard wing already on fire before the plane crashed?”

    Just skimmed by this post but it is possible the trail seen is one only of fuel given that a lot of airoplanes (sic) are fuelled on the top of the wing and if the cap was to be ill fitted and lost in inverted flight we might see such a phenomenon.

    I say this simply because the post claims it was a “single-engine plane” which would make one wing on fire extremely unlikely.

    Perhaps someone tampered with a control cable causing the aircraft to fly inverted and had loosened the filler caps??

    Check ALL the evidence.

    Did she get a choice? and the plane was veering right not left.

    The wing was on fire because it hit a tree first and ruptured the fuel tank when 3ft of wing tip and aileron sheared off.
