No probe into fatal Tornados crash

No fatal accident inquiry will be held into a mid-air crash between two RAF Tornados which claimed three lives, the Crown Office has announced.

Flight Lieutenant Hywel Poole, 28, Flight Lieutenant Adam Sanders, 27, and Squadron Leader Samuel Bailey, 36, died in the collision over the Moray Firth on July 3 2012, while a fourth crewman was badly injured.

The Crown Office said a fatal accident inquiry (FAI) "could not better and would only repeat" the investigation already carried out by the Military Aviation Authority.
