New account of N.S.11 record breaking flight

Posted on Apr 23, 2012

WWI aviation author Michael J Dunn has provided a new account of NS11’s record breaking flight – written by Air Mechanic Redvers Robert Heath, NS11’s 2nd wireless operator. It provides a very different view from that of the commander and gives us a vivid insight into what life would have been like on board during the 100 hours and 50 minutes flight. The account was used in Michael’s article on NS11’s world record flight in the Spring 2012 edition of Cross & Cockade International’s quarterly journal. Heath’s account can seen here.
