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?

Security restrictions imposed by Mussolini's regime meant passengers' cameras had to be sealed in a bag while Imperial Airways flights were refuelling at Brindisi. So photos of Brindisi as a Imperial AW port are rare. From contemporary reports passengers were taken ashore by boat because there was no flying boat dock. G-ABFA was the first of three Kents and was lost when it sank at Mirabella Bay, Crete on August 22, 1936. Photo from: Hudson Fysh Collection/State Library of New South Wales

G-ABTL arriving at Brisbane. It was surveying an air mail route from the UK to Australia to be jointly operated by Imperial and Qantas Empire Airways. QEA believed the Atalanta too big for the section from Singapore to Australia and successfully argued for the DH.86 Express to be used instead. Astraea went on to be impressed into the RAF as DG450 for service in India. Photo from: Hudson Fysh Collection/State Library of New South Wales

Built of wood like the Mosquito, the beautiful Albatross was designed to carry mail across the Atlantic or up to 22 passengers on European routes. Due to the outbreak of WWII it was really only used as an airliner during the 1939 summer season. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich

Named from Greek mythology, the Atalanta was a medium-sized four-engined airliner which carried up to 17 passengers, but only nine on long routes. G-ABTM was the eighth and final example and after brief service with Imperial Airways it was transferred to Indian Trans-Continental Airways as VT-AEG Aurora. It ended up in the Royal Indian Air Force as DG454 and was lost in a crash on 6 April 1942. Photo from: ETH-Bibliothek Zürich
