Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Boulton & Paul P.15 Bolton was a one-off experimental twin engined biplane bomber ordered by the Air Ministry to sustain Boulton & Paul's development of steel framed aircraft early in the 1920s. It was the RAF's first metal framed aircraft. Just after the end of the World War I the Air Ministry were keen to explore the use of all-steel airframes, partly because during the war spruce stocks had been seriously reduced. They were aware of Boulton & Paul's all steel framed, though probably unflown P.10 and the claims of the company designer, John North that such aircraft could be 10% lighter than their wooden framed equivalents. They therefore issued specification 4/20 for a steel framed version of the Boulton Paul Bourges twin engined reconnaissance bomber and ordered one prototype, so that Boulton & Paul could continue to develop such structures.show more
