    Default Identify 54 sqn Siskin Bailout 29th April 1930

    Can anyone suggest an ID for the AW Siskin of 54 Sqn that F/O T.B. Byrne bailed out of on 29th April 1930 at Hornchurch?

    It would be a Dual Control AW Siskin III

    Kind Regards
    Paul

    PS

    Might be one of following
    J9201
    J7146
    J9197
    J7156

    with J7156 being my current favourite but without access to J Serials I can't check!

    Having checked said book none of your possibilities appear to be the aircraft involved , certainly no details are listed for an accident at Hornchurch ? In the rear of the book is an 'Unidentified Crashes' listing which includes ; 29 April 1930 , Siskin IIIA , 54 Sqdn , wing collapsed and pilot abandoned at 1,500' half a mile from Hornchurch . F/O TB Byrne parachuted safely .
