Aerial photography 1919 AFL03_aerofilms_c12930
"Wills, Shaw and Friese-Greene Ready to Film". A publicity shot for the foundation of the Aerofilms aerial photography company taken at the London Aerodrome, Hendon. Francis Lewis Wills was a former Royal Naval Air Service Observer and co-founder of Aerofilms. Claude Friese-Greene, holding the cine-camera, was technical director for Aerofilms in its early days, but is best known as a pioneering cinematographer. We know very little about Shaw, the pilot, probably an AirCo employee. K-109 was a biplane built and owned by AirCo - in 1920 the company was taken over by De Haviland and this model became the DH9b.

Handley Page O-type biplane CC025293
A Handley Page O-type biplane in a field, Horndean, Hampshire. These aircraft saw service during the First World War, initially with the Royal Naval Air Service to operate against shipping in the North Sea and Eastern Mediterranean. An improved version entered service with the RAF in 1918-19, but after the war several entered civilian service as transport aircraft. Photographed between 1918 and 1930 for the London Midland and Scottish Railway. This was originally thought to be a Vickers Vimy but an eagle-eyed viewer spotted the misidentification - thank you!
