Joseph Vernon Murcott

Joseph Vernon Murcott standing by the plane he built in Gravelly Hill, Erdington before its inaugural flight in 1931.

He designed and built the plane himself.

He took off and landed the plane safely, and returned home jubilant.

His wife, Ida May Murcott, however did not share his excitement, and informed him that if he ever flew the plane again she would leave him!

Not daring to risk the wrath of his wife, Joseph duly dismantled the plane.

Today the only thing remaining of the Flying Flee is the propeller which is on display in our offices.
