in First of its Kind

This plaque was put up to mark an occasion in 1916 when a crowd of youngsters, including eight-year-old Frank Whittle, gathered round an aeroplane that had been forced to land on the common. As it took off it nearly hit him - knocking his cap off and triggering a lifelong fascination that led to his invention of the jet engine more than 20 years later.
