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.71A was a 1930s British twin-engined all-metal biplane transport aircraft developed by Boulton & Paul Ltd from the unsuccessful P.64 Mailplane to meet an Imperial Airways requirement for a mail plane. The P.71A was the successor to the Boulton & Paul's first attempt to meet the airline requirement, the P.64 Mailplane. The P.71A was lighter, slimmer and longer and used Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar IVA radial piston engines. Two aircraft were built and delivered to Imperial Airways at Croydon Airport in February 1935. The airline had lost interest in using them as mailplanes, so the two aircraft were converted as VIP transports with 13 removable seats.show more
