George Lee Temple crashed and died on January 21, 1914.

Date Discrepancy
Contributed by Dave Lam, 4-2-12
Ralph, there is some confusion about Temple's date of death. Flight magazine says it was 27 January 1914 and Popular Mechanics listed it as having happened on the 25th of January. Such discrepancies are not uncommon in these early records. He held UK license numbere 424 and died at Hendon in the UK.

Some references list his name as Gordon, rather than the correct George.
