Designed by Marcel Lobelle for Air Ministry Spec. 22/26, this plane was a front runner with the Hawker Osprey with the latter winning out due to it's better sea water resistance and manoeuvrability. The sole Fleetwing remained in service as a sea plane trainer. It was involved in catapult trials from H.M.S. Norfolk in 1932 and after some 28 successful take off's the plane came to grief.

Span 37'0" Length 29'4" Height 11'5" Wing area 363 sq ft
