For that past year it was having taxying trials with the occasional hop were made. The aircraft was being flown by Mr Robert Blackburn, the founder of Blackburn Aircraft. The aircraft took off over the beach. It was only in the air for one minute and it was at 3 feet when a turn was made, the aircraft side-slipped and it skidded into a hole.
