Dear Ms. Watkins,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
U.S. Navy aircraft accident reports for 1920 through 1972 are in the custody of the Naval Aviation History Branch, Naval History & Heritage Command, 805 Kidder Breese Street, SE, Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC 20374-5060. The reports are a record of operational losses and normally do not include combat losses. Requesters must have the type of aircraft and date of the accident in order to obtain a copy of the report, which are available only on microfilm.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
