Privy Council

“The doctrine of res ipsa loquitur, the thing speaks for itself, applied in a claim for damages arising out of an allegation of negligence causing an air crash, so that the burden of proof shifted to the defendant owners and operators of the aircraft to produce an explanation which was consistent with the crash having occurred despite the absence of fault on their part.”
