Cobham with Sir Sefton Branker, Director of Civil Aviation, right, with the D.H.50J.
Another view of Cobham's D.H.50J. Note the pannier beneath the fuselage for carrying the spare propeller.
Cobham described this view of the Victoria Falls as one of the greatest moments of his flight. We felt the same as we viewed it from the Rapide.
Our Rapide just prior to the Cape flight.

Te pilot's view as the Rapide approached the coast.
