Since its flight on 7 May, the Handley Page O/100 had undergone extensive further testing and modifications. In June, Frederick Lanchester from the National Physics Laboratory was called in to advise on how to eliminate excessive tail oscillations. His suggestions solved the problem.
The first Handley Page O/100 to be sent to the front arrived today. Serial number 1459, the fifth to be built, was flown to France by Squadron Commander John Tremayne Babington, and Lieutenants John Fleming Jones and Paul Bewsher from 3 Wing RNAS, to form part of their Bomber Wing.
