Hullo!



Thanks for taking a look at these ground shots of the Stag being flown about. They caused us some difficulty at the time we originally came to catalogue them, but your close examination has identified the detail on the Bank building which is the clincher for me. We'll update the catalogue entries and the details will appear here in due course, located to the fields in the top corner of the Stag Lane aerodrome, near to the lane.



The couple of shots of the aircraft in the air with no terrestrial reference cause a little difficulty - normally we wouldn't give them spatial data. It is important, however, to retain the association of this group of images so in this instance I will give them a grid reference.

Hi Glen37037,



That's part of our problem with this little group of photos of the Stag. We know it was tested at Martlesham and following this it spent time based at Stag Lane, but we don't know when after testing it was flown to De Havilland's north London base. Could have been straight away, or maybe not. The fact that Aerofilms were photographing it suggests Stag Lane, given their nearby offices; and the test pilot was one of Aerofilms' pilots. But we need more information to confirm the location!

Hi Katy

I think that I have resolved the location as Stag Lane from the houses in the background. I shall look at individual trees to confirm the photos without buildings in the background!

The 'Stag' was actually a DH9AJ, the J suffix referring to the Bristol Jupiter radial engine it was powered by. This aircraft first flew on 15th June 1926 so the photograph's date of 16th June 1926 might give a clue to where the aircraft was flying the next day.
