General Aircraft ST-18 Croydon: Tea for two…

Form & Function with class, the utter elegance of the ST-18 cockpit. This twin-engined cabin monoplane of 1936 was a further development of the “Monospar” formula so thoroughly undertaken by the General Aircraft Ltd during the 1930s. Bigger than its ancestors, the also called “Croydon”, didn’t attract any interest. The prototype met its end on October 1936 while attempting a Australia to England record,  “crash landed” in a coral reef with no lost of life.
