Sometime in July 1926, LAC William Edward Parrish No. 342140 of 9 Sqn, whilst flying over the Manston aerodrome in a Avro 504K, found his controls jammed. He descended successfully by parachute, but the aircraft was wrecked.

Previously.. LAC Parrish was involved in a collision two Avro 504K's of No. 9 Squadron, Manston, on December 16 1925 in which No. 345286 L.A.C. Edward Emanuel Dunn aged 23,
the pilot of Avro 504K, E2914, was killed. In this case Parrish the pilot of Avro 504K, E3798,
was seriously injured and taken to Ramsgate Hospital with injuries to head and right ankle.

The Avro's were with No 9 Sqn for 'ab initio' training purposes..

I don't suppose anyone can ID the Avro and the correct date can they?

Thanks
