Nares Expedition Featured Print

Nares Expedition

circa 1875: Members of a British expedition to the Arctic, led by the Scottish explorer Sir George Strong Nares (1831 - 1915). Nares joined the navy in 1846 after training at the Royal Naval College and served as mate on his first voyage on board 'Resolute' during its survey of the Arctic. He also served during the Crimea and took part in expeditions to Australia and the Mediterranean. Nares later revisited the Arctic and sailed through the Magellan Straits but is best remembered for commanding 'Challenger' during her round-the-world trip to produce an oceanographic survey for the Admiralty and the Royal Society. The results of the voyage filled 50 volumes. (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)

Cierva W.11 Air Horse VZ724

Cierva W.11 Air Horse VZ724 / G-ALCV (msn W.11/1 ), which first flew on 7 December 1948 as G-ALCV, was marked with the Air Ministry serial VZ274. G-ALCV / VZ274 crashed on 13 June 1950, claiming the lives of Alan Marsh (chief test pilot) John Jeep Cable, (Ministry of Supply test pilot), and Joseph K. Unsworth (flight engineer). The cause of the crash was due to fatigue failure of a swash-plate carrier driving link in the front rotor hub. The second Air Horse, WA555 / G-ALCW, completed around 20 hours flying before the plug was pulled and was scrapped in 1951. Date: circa 1950

Dassault-Breguet Mystere 20 1st prototype F-WLKB at the 1964 Paris Air Show, shown with the two 3,300 lbf Pratt & Whitney JT12A-8 turbojet engines originally fitted.

Re-named Falcon 20, F-WLKB also changed registration to F-BLKB, indicating that it was no longer considered experimental. F-WLKB - F-BLKB was later re-engined with General Electric CF700 turbofans, ( The CF700 was an aft-fan variant of the General Electric CJ610 turbojet, where the fan is attached to the LP turbine tips and driven directly rather than through a shaft. Date: 1964
