Designer[edit]

Report in the Times credits W G Tarrant, a building contractor, as designer assisted by Captain Rawling the general manager of aeroplane department (who was killed in the crash) and the aircraft was constructed at Farnborough under Tarrants direction. Strange no mention of Barling. MilborneOne (talk) 08:33, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Strange but only a brief article. Did you see these items?
  • Friday, May 30, 1919; pg. 14; Issue 42113; col G for Rawlings driver summonsed for speeding on 10th May.
  • The Times, Tuesday, Jun 03, 1919; pg. 16; Issue 42116; col B - in the Commons a statement that as it was a military aircraft the results of the investigations would not be made public.
  • The Times, Thursday, Jun 26, 1919; pg. 14; Issue 42136; col E "Jury's Complaint. Facts Kept Back At Triplane Inquest."
I note the crash report talks of the top engines being brought into play rather than "started" as in the article at the moment.GraemeLeggett (talk) 13:20, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
