Here’s a photograph from the August 30 1924 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a failed attempt to fly around the world:
The Wikipedia entry for Archibald Stuart-MacLaren provides more details on the attempted circumnavigation of the globe, including that the plane shown here was a replacement, after the original was destroyed when attempting to take off in Burma.
During the summer of 1924, a number of nations were trying to become the first to fly around the world; Mr. Stuart-MacLaren headed the British team. Only the Americans made it.
I couldn’t find out anything about what happened to Mr. Stuart-MacLaren after that.
