Mother says daughter's death was preventable.
Retired teacher Anne Bond, of Southport, spoke after an inquest into the death of her RAF officer daughter Elizabeth, 25, who fell 300ft from a mountain, recorded a verdict of misadventure.
She said: ``The RAF have already given me an apology and say they've put in place a new set of regulations. This was an accident that could have been prevented.
``Elizabeth was a great girl, a wonderful daughter and friend, '' her mother, a widow, added.
Flight Lieutenant Bond, based at RAF College Cranwell in Lincolnshire, slipped on Snowdon in November 2001.
The Caernarfon inquest heard she failed to heed advice to clip herself to a sling around a boulder.
Coroner Dewi Pritchard-Jones said: ``This was a preventable accident. The safety equipment was there but not used. ''
The inquest jury called for a review of the instructor-student ratio and of risk assessment.
