  • Gipsy Moth seaplane A7-55 taking off in the Ross Sea. Eric Douglas' caption 'Solo Reconnaissance Flight in open water in the Ross Sea - January, 1936. Flight Lieutenant Eric Douglas - Care has to be taken to avoid contact with brash ice during take off'. Eric Douglas' log of 12th January, 1936 'At about 8.30AM this morning we entered a pool of fairly clear water which seemed to me to have possibilities in regard to a reconnaissance flight. So the Skipper was in agreement we got the moth ready. At about 10.30AM I was lowered over the side and after a bit of manoeuvring I took off solo and climbed to 1100 feet (I could not go higher owing to clouds) and noticed that to the south (true) it appeared to offer the best path for the ship. About 30 to 35 miles away appeared to be clear water. I then alighted and was safely hoisted on board again'. Photograph taken during the Ellsworth Relief Expedition, 1935-1936.
