Footnotes

  • Cheridah de Beavoir Stocks (1887-1971) was only the secoond British woman to gain a Royal Aero Club aviator's licence in 1911, passing her test using a Farman biplane at Hendon. Following a crash during an airshow at Hendon in 1913 she was unconscious for six weeks and her recovery was closely followed by the newspapers of the day. Stocks never flew again.
