Fought to a Finish Featured Print

Fought to a Finish

Fought to a Finish: A Remarkable Exploit on a Blazing Plane An illustration by Joseph Simpson of an incident described by Mr Boyd Cable (newspaper correspondent Ernest Andrew Ewart). Though not named in the ILN caption, this seems to be the incident for which eighteen year old Canadian pilot Alan McLeod received the Victoria Cross. On 27 March 1918 the petrol tank of his Armstrong Whitworth F.K.8 was struck during a dogfight. With the aeroplane in flames and both McLeod and his observer Albert Hammond wounded, the pilot, standing on the wing to avoid the flames steered the plane to the ground, keeping it in such a position (side slipping) that the flames were blown away from the two men. Landing in no mans land between the opposing trenches, the two were rescued by British infantry. Date: 1918

Squadron Leader D.S. Don - Kings Cup Air Race

Hanworth Aerodrome, King's Cup Air Race. Hawker Tomtit G-AALL, powered by an Armstrong Siddeley Mongoose IIIA, belonging to the then Prince of Wales (Edward VIII), flown by Squadron Leader D.S. Don MVO CO. - G-AALL, which finished eighteenth at an average speed of 123.42 mph. Note that the performance of the Tomtits in the 1930 King's Cup was quite credible due to handicappers over-estimating the performance of the Tomtit. The Vickers Vellore III G-AASW can be seen in the background, whihc was the last aircraft built at Vickers Crayford factory. Date: 5 July 1930.
