Frank Barnwell designed this aircraft to look into the discrepancies found between using cowls on wind tunnel models and using cowls on full sized aircraft. The first flight was in November 1925. Interestingly it was never registered but there again it never flew far from Filton. After an undercarriage failure in 1928 it never flew again. However, by this time other research had gathered more information on cooling with cowls in place, whether the Type 92 had offered much information in that research remains to be discussed.
