S/E

In an accident report, I have the name of an S/E taxying an aircraft when an airscrew was damaged. I wonder though what is the meaning of "S/E". Possibly a kind of engineer, but what kind?

Re: S/E

S/E = Single/Engine(d) plane T/E = Twin/Engine(d) plane

Re: S/E

In this case, I guess the "S/E" was one person, but I have no idea of the meaning.

Re: S/E

Servicing engineer? I have never seen that exact term used in RAF documents, can you tell us the source of your document?

Re: S/E

I forgot to mention, this is a person, "S/E E. Flavin", who was taxying a BOAC Hudson at Leuchars. The source is BOAC memos, held at the BA Heritage Centre.

Servicing Engineer sounds possible.

Re: S/E

Hi Nils,

I would've thought that it stood for "Senior Engineer".

Cheers,

Tim
