Evening Post, Volume CXI, Issue 86, 13 April 1931, Page 10
(Received 13th April, 2 p.m.) LONDON, 12th’April. Captain Neville -Stack,, regarded-as Britain’s ablest civilian’ pilot, accompanied by Mr. J. R. Chaplin, to-day established a record by flying from London to Berlin and back in one day, a distance of 1250 miles. The flying time; was 628 minutes; He used a Vickers-Napier air-mail carrier in, which he will shortly attempt a record: flight from London to Australia, and back.
Evening Post, Volume CXI, Issue 100, 30 April 1931, Page 11
United Tress Association—By Electric Telegraph—Copyright. LONDON, 29th April. Captain Neville Stack, with Mr. J. H. Chaplin, in an open two-seater machine, left Lympne at daybreak in an endeavour to fly to Australia and back in 21 days.
Interviewed, Captain Stack said Commander Kidston has shown the Post Office how the air mail services to South Africa may be improved.
“We hope to point the same lesson, and even go a stage further; we may beat Mr. Anderson Scott’s magnificent record on the outward flight, but that is not out object. Our motive really is to demonstrate the urgent necessity for a regular fast service to the eastern -portions of the Empire.
“It is useless to use comparatively slow machines for mails. It is possible to run a regular mail service to Australia in ten days instead of the present fifteen. “Our experimental schedule is what a single machine can accomplish. Relays of men and machines could outdo this easily.” Mr. Chaplin was aide-de-camp to Lord Byng when the latter was Governor- General of Canada. He comes from a millionaire Vancouver family.
Commander Kidston flew from England to Cape Town in 6 days 10 hours. Anderson Scott completed his England- Australia flight in 10 days and a few hours. A previous message stated that Messrs’ Stack and Chaplin would fly in a Vickers-Napier 135 mile-an-hour mail carrier.
NOTE: It was recently reported that, in order to demonstrate the practicability of .a fast air mail service within the Empire, Captain Neville Stack proposed to make an experimental flight with mails to Australia.
The airman hopes to fly to Darwin and back in 21 days, only one of which would be spent at Darwin. He intended to use a Vickers bomber, converted as a mail carrier, with a top speed of 150 miles an hour. The Associated Chambers of Commerce proposed to send letters to all the Australian Chambers of Commerce, and efforts were being made to induce the Post Office to frank the letters as air mail.
NOTE: Parents of Neville Stack came from Knockanure.
