Vickers Vendace

Built to the requirements of Air Ministry Specification 5A/24 for a floatplane trainer, the single Vickers Type 120 Vendace Mk I was a fairly conventional folding wing equal-span biplane with tandem open cockpits, and was powered by a 205kW Rolls-Royce Falcon III engine. Tested officially in both landplane and floatplane form, it was retained for experimental purposes but no production order followed. One Type 133 Vendace Mk II with a 224kW ADC Nimbus engine was built in 1928 as a private venture and sold for aerial survey use in South America. The unusual landing gear layout of the Vickers Vendace I was the result of the ultimate objective of using the type on floats. The entire fuel supply was contained in the two streamlined tanks above the upper-wing centre-section. In landplane form the Vendace I spanned 13.59m, weighed a maximum of 1576kg and had a top speed of 188km/h.
