Transatlantic Flight p83 the carrier aircraft MAIA was designated Short S.21, and was substantially modified from the S.23 'Empire' design ( with a 17% bigger wing area,different nose&hull shape and floats, different tail, engines further from body).........
Already advised to the Editor but on page 80 in the article A Brief History of Transatlantic Flight Part 1, the destination for the flight by US Navy Curtis (sic) NC4s should read Plymouth, not Portsmouth Harbour. 'Curtiss' appears correctly elsewhere.

Like others I have fedback via an alternate route but just found this channel on the forum so placing here too.
Can I feedback one correction to the excellent article on transatlantic flight - page 82 para 5 of section Into the 1930s? It states that Wiley Post and Harold Getty landed at Chester, England on their circumnavigation flight. They actually landed at RAF Sealand on the 24th June 1931, they took on fuel and undertook a basic engine check courtesy of the local mechanics. The entire base contingent turned out to wave them off. Sealand is very proudly inside Wales, if only just! Chester is a few miles down the road and the other side of the border.
