Te Nieuport & General L.S.3 Goshawk racer G-EASK was built early in 1920 (L.S. stands for Land Sporting). It was powered by a 340 h.p. ABC Dragonfly engine which gave the aircraft a top speed of 167 m.p.h.
Wingspan of the Goshawk was only 20ft 6in and the length was 18ft 9in. This photograph was taken at Martlesham Heath in 1920, probably at the time that Leslie Tait-Cox achieved a speed of 166-4 m.p.h. there. H. G. Hawker was killed in this Nieuport Goshawk when he suffered a haemorrhage in the air over Hendon on July 12, 1921. Designed by H. P. Folland, the Goshawk was powered by a 320 h.p. ABC Dragonfly 1 engine and had a top speed of 167 m.p.h. This photograph was taken at Martlesham Heath in 1920.
