R.Williams - Siskin Successor
Armstrong-Whitworth Starling Single-Seater Fighter.
The first Starling, J8027, which made its maiden flight on May 12, 1927. Its flying qualities left much to be desired.
View of J8028, the Starling II, built to meet Specification F.9/26 and altogether more elegant than the first machine.
The final Starling, A-2, an interceptor fighter to F.20/27.
THE ARMSTRONG WHITWORTH "STARLING": Side View. Owing to the raised position of the pilot, the large angle of incidence of the top plane, and the absence of a cabane, the view is particularly good.
The second Starling II, A-I, a fleet fighter to Specification N.21/26
