John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown were the first to successfully fly the Atlantic on 14-15 June 1919. They made the journey in a WW1 “Vickers Vimy” plane originally designed and built in the Vickers factory in Crayford.

The pilots visited Crayford to celebrate their success on 23 July 1919.

To mark this important centenary, the Alcock and Brown Centenary Project Group (Crayford), supported by the London Borough of Bexley and with a grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, have organised a number of special events throughout 2019.
