is that 1919?? if so that would be 10 years before Heston Aerdorome was built....should it be Hounslow?
Whoops Typo, well spotted 233 .. Should have read Hendon
CALLED urgently to Dublin one morning recently on business, and not wishing, if he could avoid it, to spend a day on the journey by train and steamer, Mr. Gordon Selfridge telephoned to the Private Hire Department of Aircraft Transport and Travel, Ltd., and arranged to make the trip in an Airco 9 biplane, piloted by Captain Gathergood.
After finishing his morning's work in his office, Mr. Selfridge lunched and then motored to Hendon,ascending at 2.30 p.m., and flying non-stop to Shotwick, near Chester, where a halt was made for tea and to obtain a report as to the weather over the Irish Sea. The flight was then resumed, and Dublin reached at 6.30 p.m.,in ample time for dinner.......
