F.Bullmore - Circus Pilot (2)
The AEROFILMS picture provides an intimate view of wing-walker Martin Hearn on Aviation Tour's blue and silver Avro 504K G-EBYW in 1930.
The Handley Page Clive G-ABYX leads the three Avro Cadets (G-ACLU, G-ACOZ and G-ACPB), Tiger Moth G-ACEZ and Ferry G-ABSI during the Grand Formation Flypast at Dagenham on April 14, 1934.
Tyson dives his Tiger Moth through the hoop at Dagenham on April 15, 1934, before looping up over it, causing Flight to comment: “He is very accurate indeed... but here again takes, we feel, undue risks in his desire to give the public a good show".
The red, white and blue Avro Cadets were used for formation flying and for joyriding. For 7s 6d (38p) a seat the public could even take part in a Cadet race around a triangular course.
