The headstone shows the Vickers Vimy bi-plane set under an ornate scroll. Late in the First World War, the British rushed into production a twin-engine heavy bomber with which they hoped to pound enemy fortifications at the front and German factories behind the Rhine. In 1913 the London Daily Mail had offered a 10,000-pound prize for the first successful non-stop flight across Atlantic Ocean. At the end of World War I the prize remained unclaimed. Then, late in the afternoon of June 14, 1919, a Vickers Vimy IV took off from St. John's, Newfoundland, and headed eastward across the Atlantic. The Vimy lumbered along between sea level and 12,000 feet at an average speed of about 118 miles per hour. Finally, at 8:40 the following morning, Alcock and Brown sighted the wireless station at Clifden, Ireland, landing in a bog.
