Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bristol Type 76 Jupiter Fighter and Type 89 Trainer were derivatives of the British fighter of the First World War (the F.2 Fighter), powered by Bristol Jupiter radial engines. While unsuccessful as a fighter, it was used as an advanced trainer aircraft between 1924 and 1933. In order to demonstrate their new Jupiter engine in an inexpensive yet relatively high performance aircraft, Bristol Aeroplane Company authorised the conversion of three war surplus F.2 airframes to use the Jupiter, to create the Type 76 Jupiter Fighter, which it was also hoped to sell as a fighter to foreign air forces.show more
