It commemorates the “Daily Express Coronation” transatlantic flight made from nearby Ainsdale beach to New York in 1937. "Daily Express" was the name given to the plane. The plane was specially commissioned to shuttle back newsreel footage and photographs of the May 12, 1937 coronation of King George VI in London, and because of this, it also became known as the "Coronation Flight".
