According to the archive documents, a single MkI was sent on 2 August 1916 in two crates to Russia (SS Santaren) as a demonstration. According to sanction №10643 of the British Government on 24/9/16 an order №17 for 50 VICKERS-SCOUT Airplanes with spares for the Russian Air Corps was placed. (44000£). The order had been completed in 1917. According to the "List of aircraft available at the Central Aviation Depot in Moscow" on 20.09.17, there still were 43 Vickers (without engines). It is known that at least 4 aircraft were used at Russian W and SW fronts in the autumn of 1917.

I have run into some controversy regarding this aircraft. Some and I should say most sources describe this aircraft as single-seat biplane, while others indicate that the aircraft was a pusher design. Perhaps they are confusing it with the "Gunbus". But any clarity would be most appreciated.

Used by Nos 111 squadron in Palestine and 17 and 47 in Macedonia.possibly no 11 on the western front. Manoeuvrability appears to be its weakness. They seem to lose the Hun as he starts manoeuvring . Major Geneeral W S Branker.

I am trying to put together fabrication drawings for the FB.19 Mk 1 as used in Russia just before and after the Revolution of 1917. Anyone know of existing drawings?

but no squadron used the type exclusively and it was not well liked.
