The End of the Voyage
The End of the Voyage

The British round-the-world flight attempt ended on a beach near Nikolskoye on Bering Island, off the Kamchatka Peninsula.

Soon after leaving Petropavlovsk, the Vickers Vulture flying boat made a forced landing in the ocean. The crew were able to get their aircraft to the nearest beach, but the damage seen here could not be repaired. HMCS Thiepval raced through the night to meet the stranded crew and then salvaged their aircraft, hauling it up on the ship's rear deck for the trip to Canada. The propeller from this aircraft was subsequently displayed in the naval officers' mess at Esquimalt.
