Narrative:
The aircraft was built to Contract 35a/3268/C3791 by A.V. Roe Ltd, Manchester as J755. The aircraft was immediately declared 'surplus to requirements' as it was manufactured after WW1 had ended, it probably never left the factory.

After being purchased by A.V. Roe Ltd and registered to them as G-EANQ on 22nd September 1919 it was sold to Border Aviation Co Ltd who were based in Carlisle in April 1920. The company owning it went into liquidation in October 1920 and the Certificate of Airworthiness lapsed on 8th October 1920.

It was transferred to the company's former proprietors Robert F Little & Percy H Ingham who then became Ingham & Little Aviation Company based at Botcherby, Carlisle on 25th May 1921. Its C.of A. was renewed on 20th July 1921 but it suffered its Cat.W/FA on 1st December 1921 when it caught fire in the air and crashed onto a beach near Kirk Andrews, to the West of Carlisle and at the edge of the Solway Firth near Carlisle and burnt out.

The registration was cancelled shortly afterwards on 5th December 1921. The company were not insured and folded shortly afterwards.
