The Vellox airliner was developed from the Vickers Vellore, a cargo and mail aircraft which in its original form was single-engined. Comfortable accomodation for ten passengers was provided but Imperial Airways only used the sole Vellox as a nocturnal mailplane while testing Lorenz blind landing equipment. It crashed after a few months in service in August 1936. Four-blade propellers are fitted here.

First flown on 18 July 1936, this was the sole Ju 52 owned by DDL before WWII. The forward fuselage was painted red. After the outbreak of the war, 'Denmark' was painted on the roof, with Danish flags on wings and tail surfaces. DDL was allowed to carry on under the German occupation of Denmark. Selandia crashed near Vienna - Aspern on 18 December 1942.

The Avro 652 was the precursor of the Anson. Only two examples were built. Imperial Airways used them mostly to fly express mail to their seaplane station in Brindisi, until the Empire flying boats entered service. They were then sold to Air Service Training Ltd and impressed in 1941, G-ACRN becoming DG656. Photo from: Nationaal Archief (Netherlands)

'First regular airmail service to Australia'. Imperial Airways schedules were always complicated - the HP.45 flew to Karachi and an AW.15 Atalanta continued to Darwin. As there was too much demand for the inaugural flight, the public were fooled: Hengist actually carried mail for India while letters for Australia had been dispatched via the old route to Karachi which involved a train between Paris and Brindisi. Even when transported entirely by air, the mail still took almost two weeks from London to Sydney.

This Heron is the former G-ANUO, which was last operated by Topflight and Avtech in the 1980s and 1990s. Its registration was cancelled from the register on 8 Aug 1996, and a few months later, in Nov 1996, it was placed on display as seen here, in front of the former Croydon Airport's terminal building. It is falsely painted as G-AOXL of Morton Air Services, the last aircraft to make a passenger flight from Croydon Airport on 30 Oct 1959. By late 2020 the aircraft was still on display here in much the same condition. The real G-AOXL was sold to Norway in 1971.
