An Aviation Accident

In October 1909, an aviation meeting was held at Doncaster Racecourse. These were the early days of flying, the machines were primitive and their designers and engineers (often wealthy amateurs) learnt and adapted through trial and error. Such meetings were an opportunity to share ideas and show off the latest models. Accidents must have been common and here we see a rather bent aeroplane being towed back to base for a rethink and rebuild.
