The aircraft was taking part in an (test or air race) on a beach near Saltburn-by-the-Sea. It was first time that the aircraft would be flown. For that past year it was having taxying trials with the occasional hop were made. The aircraft was being flown by Mr Robert Blackburn, the founder of Blackburn Aircraft.
