Spirit of St Louis EPW018121

Charles Lindbergh and the Spirit of St Louis coming in to land at Croydon Aerodrome, 29th May 1927 having flown in from Brussels. Lindbergh had made his record-breaking single-handed flight across the Atlantic only nine days before. After landing he made an additional five minute demonstration flight circling the aerodrome. According to Lindbergh's flight log: "Took off before end of landing roll to avoid injuring crowd, which broke through police lines. Stabilizer damaged by pressure of crowd. Repaired at Croydon". This aerial photograph is well positioned to show the crowds watching his descent. From Croydon Lindbergh flew to Gosport where the Spirit of St Louis was disassembled and packed aboard a US cruiser for its trip home to the United States. From a copy negative.

Armstrong Whitworth AW650 Argosy BAR03_01_506

The nose cone, cockpit and port side of an Armstrong Whitworth AW650 Argosy on display at the Farnborough Airshow at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, September 1960. The Armstrong Whitworth Argosy was first flown in 1959. The civil model was given the number AW650 while the military models were assigned AW660; the two models were of very similar design. The aircraft in this photograph is likely a 102 series aircraft, built for British European Airways with the registration G-APRN and construction number 6654. Photographed by Norman Barnard.

Dirigible and aircraft AFL03_aerofilms_b2308

Dirigible and BE2 aircraft, pre-war, no date or location. This small unidentified airship is probably a Royal Navy submarine spotter, flying the white ensign and being attended by a number of naval personnel. The Royal Aircraft Factory BE2 in the foreground was widely used from 1914, most successfully against Zeppelin raiders in 1916, but thereafter was largely used for training. This example is missing its tail fin but retains its rudder and may have been decommissioned. Aerofilms Collection (see Links).
