Considering the lack of planes 100 years ago, this must have caused quite a stir, especially with fighting taking place across the Channel.

“At about midday on Wednesday an Army biplane on a trial flight descended in the large meadow opposite Coolhurst, just off the Brighton Road.

“Engine trouble was the cause of the descent. There were two airmen, an officer and a private.

“Up till yesterday (Friday) morning the airmen were still at Horsham.”
