Terry Tully

Terry Tully served in the Irish Royal Flying Corps in World War I and joined the Ontario Provincial Air Service in 1924. He, along with another former Air Service pilot, James Medcalf, left Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, on September 7, 1927 in a Stinson Detroiter, 'Sir John Carling', in an attempt to make the crossing of the Atlantic from Newfoundland to London and win the $25, 000 prize offered by Carling Brewery of London, Ontario. No trace of them was ever found; their disappearance was the main reason why 'Duke' Schiller abandoned his trans-Atlantic flight.
