This photograph, from the Library of South
Australia collection, purports to show this aeroplane
"somewhere on an air strip in South
Australia" in 1922. Formerly registered in the 1919 U.K.
K-107, this was the machine which was used on an
attempt on the Cairo to Cape
Town record with a prize of £10,000 from the Daily Mail.
It was flown by Vickers pilots
Cockerell and Capt F.C.G. Broome, although crashed at Tabora,
February 19020. It was ostensibly written off. I say
ostensibly since, if it really did show
up in SA
in 1922 somebody (a) repaired it and (b) flew it out to
Oz! Comments, anyone?
