Ex-RAF H5905 (former RAF serial used on Air Ministry documentation in lieu of any official constructors number). First registered 13.9.20 to Handley Page Transport as G-EAVL

Registration cancelled 7.4.21 as "crashed" although details are lacking. However, Handley Page Transport Ltd operated a London-Paris air service from Cricklewood Aerodrome from 17.2.20, and it is likely that G-EAVL was used on this service

Written off 7.4.21 when crashed on takeoff from Cricklewood Aerodrome, London: Shortly after takeoff from Cricklewood, while on a regular schedule flight to Paris-Le Bourget, aircraft crashed in unknown circumstances. Both occupants were injured while the aircraft was destroyed.
