Hi, I’ve just been given an album of my great grandfathers photos including one of this plane when it stopped in Cairo in 1924. He was Anthony Edward Chapman. Happy to email the pic of you email me.
Heather.

To Tony Jensen
Please do get in touch with me as I have only just seen your note that you have an album with photographs of G-EBHO.
Thank you.


Vanessa Ascough, e-mail, 13.04.2017 16:28

To Alistair Mochrie - I am so sorry I did not see your comment before now. Please do get in touch with me as I would be so interested in your album and if a photograph is my grandfather.
Thank you.

I have recently been left my late uncle's photo album which he compiled whilst serving in the RAF in Hinaidi in 1924. He died in 1924 in an accident in Hinaidi. The album was about to be destroyed as no-one found it of significance. One of the photos is of this Vickers Vulture as it stopped on route around the world at Hinaidi Airfield. There are some men standing around and one could well be Sqd Ldr McLaren

I have acquired an album containing photographs of g-ebho in Egypt. The album also contains many pictures of the Royal Signal Corp in Egypt around 1925.


David Kennedy, e-mail, 28.12.2014 10:36

The photo at the top of this page is from the album of Edwin Newman (now in San Diego). I wondered if any of you could shed light on Newman who took the photo at Hinaidi - presumably in April 1924.

If anyone has any knowledge about the plane, or information about the flight, I would be very pleased if you would contact me.

I have been researching MacLaren from his first flights in 1918 and his subsequent work on Aerial Route 1 in 1919.I would love to contribute to your Grandfather's history.
Please get in touch.

Please may I have Vanessa Ascough's contact e-mail address. Thanks.

I have a photograph of this plane when it landed in Egypt as my father was stationed there at the time and it is in his own album recording his stay there. He has the caption 'World Flight April 1924'.
If you think it would be of interest to you I can send you a copy via email although I expect by now you have finished your memoirs.


Vanessa Ascough, e-mail, 05.12.2006 19:17

I am the granddaughter of Squadron Leader Archibald Stuart MacLaren who attempted to fly round the world in 1924. THis Vickers Vulture was a Mark V1 powered by a single 450 HP Napier Lion engine with a four blade pusher propellor.

I am anxious to write the memoirs of my grandfather, especially while his daughter, my mother, is still living.

If anyone has any knowledge about the plane, or information about the flight, I would be very pleased if you would contact me.

Thank you
