Narrative:
Nieuport Delage 30T F-CGTI (c/no. 6522): Written off (presumably destroyed) 29.3.20 when crashed at Lympne Airport, Lympne, Ashford, Kent. According to a rough translation from French into English of the French Wikipedia entry on this aircraft type:

"Nieuport-Delage NiD.30T: The prototype (F-CGAT) was eventually retained by Nieuport-Astra, later becoming the Nieuport NiD.30T1, and six NiD.30Ts entered service on the line between Le Bourget and Hounslow. Their operation was as brief as it was troubled: on 29 March 1920 , F-CGTI crashed at Lympne. On The 27 April 1920, F-CGTY crashed in the English Channel in intense fog. The second aircraft then received a sound frequency orientation system that operated by direction finding. On the 24 November 1920, F-CGTO struck a hill at Ide Hill, near Sevenoaks. The last three examples (F-CGTA/E/U) were taken out of service as soon as Compagnie générale transaérienne merged with Compagnie des messageries in 1921 and were cancelled".
