Thanks for the confirmation Nick.   I just wasn't quite sure if that is a small 'A' visible before the serial - or not.   Sturtivant certainly does detail Avro 504C '8599' but curiously does not give any indication of any incident at Dover.

8599 is an Avro 504
A8599 was a BE2e

Just seen this series of posts and I can confirm that the aircraft in the original photo is a B.E.2c.
No idea as to a serial though.

The inverted a/c seemingly an Avro 504 (K?) serial (A?)8599.

The second - possibly also a 504 - reminds me of Michael Caine's words in the film The Italian Job - 'now whatever you do, don't move!'

This one is easier to identify even if its the wrong way up! No evidence it was one of Capt White's. :0)





This one beggars belief!

Wonderful photo. Surely a BE of some type?

Not a Bleriot .Spot the four bladed prop and an in-line engine.
No ailerons so could be a BE2 a/b ?
the civilians look like they're auditioning for "Cider With Rosie".
