It is with regret that Flight learns of the death, in a flying accident, of the 28-year-old Maharajah of Jodhpur, one of India's most air-minded princes. The Majarajah - who was flying as a passenger at the time - was a keen and experienced pilot who had done a great deal to further the cause of aviation in India. Much of his enthusiasm was undoubtedly inherited from his famous father, A. V/M. Majarajah Sir Umad Singhji, G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E., K.C.V.O., who was the first Indian prince to become a well-known pilot.
