The plane that crashed was a competition version of the Bristol-Coanda Monoplane purchased by the War Office as trainers. The crash led to a five month ban on the flying of all monoplanes by the military wing of the Royal Flying Corps (established only five months earlier)and was caused by one of the bracing wires on the wings becoming detached. The plane was built by the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company.
