P.Jarrett - Lost & Found
Having read the Lost & Found item in TAH18, Mick Davis of Cross & Cockade International has come up with another flying accident in which the Rt Hon Winston Churchill (seen here at Portsmouth in May 1914) was involved. On July 18, 1919, he was in Monosoupape-engined Avro 504K E3705 of the Air Council Inspection Squadron at Croydon with Lt-Col Scott IIFA, when the aircraft stalled in a turn at 160ft (50m) and was wrecked. The occupants were reported to be “OK".
Looking extremely forlorn and very incongruous in a built-up area of Paris, Wright Model B "No 16" is dismantled for removal. Any further information to the Editor please!
