A Bentley Mystery


Looking recently through a copy of an aviation year-book for 1931, I noted that amongst the civil aircraft registered for that year, was a DH60 Moth, G-ABAG, owned by Bentley Motors. Now, was this the company car? If so, who flew the aircraft and for what purpose? Perhaps your readers could provide an answer to these points?

One would have thought that the company’s financial situation was tight enough at most times, without the luxury of owning and using an aeroplane. This, in the same year that a receiver was appointed on an application before the Chancery Division of the High Court.
