This is the prototype of the M.3 Falcon, developed from the M.2 Hawk. Just a week after its first flight, it started in the great London to Melbourne Air Race but despite this, there are few photos of this aircraft. Pilot Harold Brook took a month to arrive in Melbourne and did complain about the lack of attention he got. His return flight to England in 1935 was very much faster.

One of only 18 Falcon Majors built, this aircraft was originally G-ADHG. In 1937 it was exported to Australia, becoming VH-AAT. During the Second World War it was impressed into the RAAF as A37-3. Seen here at the 1995 Australian International Airshow, where it was being flown by renowned air safety author Macarthur Job.
This beautiful touring aircraft was built in 1936 and flown by Phillips & Powis Aircraft using Class B registration U-20. Sold to Sweden as SE-AFN in late 1936 and flown as FV913 in WW2. Returned to UK as G-AEEG in 1963.
