Summary: The plane was on a flight from London to Paris when power was lost to the starboard engine. The aircraft began to lose altitude until it eventually ditched into the sea about 18 miles from the English coast. The plane stayed afloat long enough for the fishing boat Invicta, piloted by Captain Marshall, to rescue all aboard. The plane was named Prince Henry.
