Spirit of St Louis EPW018121 Featured Aircraft Print

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.

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.

A Fairey Swordfish Mk.II flying over Blackpool in 1971. This type of torpedo bomber was used by the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy during World War 2. It was used successfully at the Battle of Taranto in 1940 and in attacks that crippled the German battleship Bismarck in 1941, as well as during anti-submarine operations throughout the war. This example is still in flying condition as part of the Royal Navy Historic Flight. Aerofilms Collection (see Links)
