The 32-year-old sergeant, who lived in Carterton, died when her parachute failed to open properly during a training jump from RAF Weston on the Green, near Bicester, on September 2, 2021.
She was pronounced dead by an air ambulance doctor called to where her body was found in a field at Simms Farm, Chesterton.
Last year, Oxford Coroner’s Court heard that Thames Valley Police had launched an investigation into possible offences of corporate manslaughter, gross negligence manslaughter or crimes under the Health and Safety at Work Act.

However, detectives announced in June 2022 that they had concluded their probe, with the investigation handed over to the Health and Safety Executive.
Last night, a spokesman for the HSE said its investigation was ongoing.
An internal armed forces investigation concluded that Ms Fisk’s parachute had failed due to air turbulence produced by her body position during free fall.
In its report, published earlier this summer, the MOD investigators also found that her body suit, which was non RAF issue and fitted with ‘wings’, may have contributed to the tragedy.
Ms Fisk, who had been filming training jumps, captured her final moments on a GoPro camera attached to her helmet.
Paying tribute following her death, Flt Lt Nathan Ellis, commanding officer at the Joint Service Parachute Centre, said: “Rachel brought life, enjoyment and fun to all – her love for the job was infectious and she created a bond with everyone she worked with. She was a natural and conscientious instructor and a role model for her students.”
She was described by the RAF as a selfless individual who worked with professionalism and diligence. She was ‘spurred by her passion’ for her work.
Sqn Ldr Helen Simpson said: “Rachel never failed to impress with her skydiving ability and it was very clear she would go far – but it is her personality, her humour and her huge heart that will be sorely missed by all of us at Weston on the Green.”
