Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bristol-Gordon England biplane was an early British military aircraft that first flew in 1912. Designed for easy ground transport, the aircraft could be quickly disassembled. An unusual feature of an otherwise conventional design was that the lower wing was not directly attached to the bottom of the fuselage, but was mounted on struts - a distinctive design element that would be carried over to the Bristol Fighter. The Gordon England biplane was submitted in the British military aeroplane trials of 1912, with two different engines, flown by Howard Pixton and Gordon England but was passed over in favour of the Avro Type E. Bristol nevertheless managed to sell two examples to the Turkish armed forces, which remained undelivered due to an Italian blockade of Turkish ports.show more
