HC Deb 30 March 1927 vol 204 cc1268-9W
Colonel DAY

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether it has been decided to commence a series of air-flag flights: and, if so, how many Royal Air Force craft will be utilised for this proposed flight, the approximate date when they will commence, and the cities it is proposed to visit?


I am not quite clear to what flights the hon. Member refers, but arrangements have been made for a formation of four service aircraft to visit Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol, Nottingham and Birmingham. These five visits will take place shortly after Easter, and are the maximum number which can be arranged without interference with the normal training programme.

Rear-Admiral SUETER

asked the Secretary of State for Air what types of machines and engines are to be used in the four bombing types of Royal Air Force machines which are to visit provincial centres to give demonstrations in flying?


The type of machine and engine has not yet been settled, but if my hon. and gallant Friend will put down his question again in about a week's time I should hope to be in a position to give him a reply.
