Sopwith Atlantic biplane flown by Hawker and Mackenzie-Grieve, 1919
Australian pilot Harry Hawker and Scottish navigator Kenneth F. Mackenzie-Grieve departed from a field in Mount Pearl on 18 May 1919. An engine failure forced them to land in the Atlantic Ocean 14 hours and 1,770 kilometres later. They were rescued by a Danish freighter.
