Narrative:
Avro 504L K-146 had a mishap at Weymouth near the old Pavilion (later Ritz) Theatre. The incident which led to this situation occurred on Saturday 16th August 1919. The seaplane was piloted by Captain Alan Storey and had come up from the west to pick up a lady passenger and take her to Bournemouth. Just after take-off it appears that the propellor broke up after an explosion and the aircraft force-landed ahead. The two occupants were rescued by boats which put out from the beach and the wreckage was towed to the harbour.

The aircraft is noted in the UK civil register as written off(presumably bookkeeping date)on 5 December 1919 having been allotted the new marks G-EAFG, 19 June 1919 (marks not applied to the airfrfame)
