Footnotes

  • G-AAXD was named after Horatius, a legendary Roman hero. Horatius first flew on 6 November 1931. Horatius was flown by the RAF in the Second World War. Returning to Exeter from France on a transport mission on 7 November 1939, the aircraft could not find its destination due to bad weather and made an emergency landing at Tiverton Golf Course; It hit two trees and was destroyed. A four-bladed wooden propeller from the aircraft was salvaged and is now on display at the Croydon Airport Visitor Centre, situated in the former terminal building of Croydon Airport.
