Abstract: Injectivity and support theorems are proved for a class of Radon transforms, $ {R_\mu }$, for $ \mu $ a smooth family of measures defined on a certain space of affine planes in $ {\mathbb{X}_0}$, where $ {\mathbb{X}_0}$ is the tangent space, of a Riemannian symmetric space of rank one. The transforms are defined by integrating against $ \mu $ over these planes. We show that if $ {R_\mu }f$ is supported inside a ball of radius $ R$ then so is $ f$. This is true for $ f \in L_c^2({\mathbb{X}_0})$ or $ f \in \mathcal{E}'({\mathbb{X}_0})$. Furthermore, $ {R_\mu }$ is invertible on either of these domains. The main technique is to use facts about spherical harmonics to reduce the problem to a one-dimensional integral equation.
