Port Victoria P.V.5a

Postby TASSE » Fri Apr 10, 2009 8:49 pm

During the first world war various small biplanes were built at the Isle of Grain in Kent. Among them was the Port Victoria P.V 5 and 5a. I found a 3 view of the P.V.5 on the Virtual Aircraft Museum but no 5a.

Any offers ? TASSE.

Hello Tasse

According to Jack Bruce's book "British Aeroplanes 1914-18" the photo that you posted is of the P.V.5a (N54). The P.V.5 was N53. Unfortunately Bruce doesn't have any 3-views in his book. I can scan the photo of N53, or the whole article, and send it to you if you are interested.

Hello AA.
Yes it is the 5a. Thanks for the offer but only a 3 view will do.

Thanks again. TASSE.
