BRITISH ‘PLANES AT BUENOS AIRES.
WITHIN a few hours of the public being admitted to the Government Pavilion at the British Empire Trades Exhibition at Buenos Aires three sales, nearly £3,000 in value, had been concluded at the de Havilland stand. Two actual show machines were sold, a Gipsy Moth and a Puss Moth, the purchasers being willing to wait for delivery until the Exhibition closes this month. The third sale was of a
. Gipsy Moth to Bieckert’s Brewery, Buenos Aires, which already owns two similar machines.
Immediately after the official opening of the Exhibition by H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, he and Prince George set off on a four days’ flying tour through Rosario and Cordova. The Prince of Wales used his own Puss Moth, while Prince George obtained the loan of a Puss Moth from the de Havilland Aircraft Company.
