Bristol 101

Designed as a private venture, the Type 101 two-seat fighter powered by a 450hp Bristol Jupiter VI ninecylinder radial was of mixed construction, the fuselage being a ply-covered spruce structure and the wings being of steel with fabric skinning. Armament comprised two synchronised 7.7mm Vickers guns and a Scarff-mounted Lewis gun. Cleaner and more compact than most contemporary aircraft in its category, the Type 101, which was first flown on 27 July 1927, offered a relatively high performance, but was rejected by the Air Ministry because of its use of wood. As no other customers presented themselves, the prototype served in the test bed role.
