Frank Barnwell designed racing bi-plane, which was entered in the 1926 Kings Cup Air Race but had to retire with a fuel feed problem. In 1927 it was rebuilt using a revised wing and interplane struts with a raised cockpit as in the 3 view drawing. It gained a C of A 26th July 1926 but fatally crashed two days later.
