Handley Page's prototype of their first passenger airliner, developed from the O/400 bomber. It was written off on 10 July 1923 during a forced landing at Poix in France following engine problems during a flight from Croydon to Le Bourget, when it over-ran the runway and broke it's back. No injuries were sustained by the seven passengers, and the two crew members received "minor injuries". Photographer not known, possibly an Imperial Airways publicity shot?
