This historic aircraft was the first single-engine aircraft to fly from England to Australia, in 1920. The journey took an incredible 206 days, including two forced landings in the Middle East and a crash at Moulmein, Burma. The letters 'PD' are Parer & McIntosh's sponsor, Peter Dawson whiskey distillers. Built for the RAF as F1278 in 1918, the aircraft was purchased by the AWM for 250 pounds in 1922. Restored 1975-1990.
