Paper Aeroplane exchange - Newfoundland + North Scotland

About this project

Caithness artist,  Joanne B Kaar has been inspired by events reported in the
John O’Groat Journal 100 years ago, when daring aviators, Harry G Hawker
and Commander K Mackenzie Grieve,  left St. John’s Newfoundland, attempting to cross the Atlantic non-stop.

Engine problems resulted in them ditching in the Atlantic.  Rescued, they were brought to Scrabster,  Caithness, in the north of Scotland, where a crowd had gathered to welcome them. They received the Cross of the Royal Air Force.
