4 engined Handley Page 0/100
« on: December 01, 2019, 04:58:04 AM »
In Bloody Paralyser, a book about Handley Page bombers, there is a mention of a HP 0/100 that was outfitted with two Hispano Suiza 200hp tractor engines and two Hispano Suiza pusher engines arranged in tandem pairs. This aircraft was flown at Farnborough in October 1917. Data gained from this aircraft was later used on the larger V/1500 with four 375hp Eagle VIII engines.
Does anyone have a photo of the 0/100 with four engines?

note the full size fuselage roundel just behind the wing (no white outline), and the full size rudder stripes.  Two bladed props on all 4 engines, the front cowling nose caps appear to be an elongated bowl shape, with 3 cooling holes, 1 below the propshaft and 2 above. I cannot see any sign of roundels below the wings. The colour appears to be overall PC10 or Nivo.
