Object description

Model 28-5, P9630, moored at Felixstowe, Suffolk, shortly after joining the Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment for trials in July 1939. P9630 subsequently flew with Nos. 228, 240 and 210 Squadrons RAF on a number of early long-range reconnaissance sorties before returning to the MAEE with whom it was written off in a landing accident at Dumbarton in February 1940. The 'N' prefix in front of the serial number was applied by the United States Civil Aeronautics Administration for ferrying purposes.
