RAF doctor will not face further action
Updated 8:26am Wednesday 26th March 2014 in News
An RAF doctor will not face further action after a tribunal ruled he wrote misleading medical reports for a pilot who later died in a plane crash with a teenage passenger.
Dr Douglas Wyper, who was based at RAF Benson, assessed Mike Blee as fit to fly between 2006 and 2008 despite being aware he had a spinal condition.
Flt Lt Blee, 62, and air cadet Nicholas Rice, 15, died when their light aircraft hit a glider in Drayton in June 2009.
The Medical Practitioners Tribunal found Dr Wyper’s fitness to practise was impaired but yesterday said no further action would be taken due to the fact Dr Wyper had previously been suspended indefinitely.
