A Supermarine "Seagull V" with Bristol "Pegasus II M" engine, one of a batch tor the Royal Australian Air Force, heads for the open water while the new Orient liner Orion leaves Southampton on her maiden voyage. In the British Fleet Air Arm, incidentally, the "Seagull" will be known as the "Walrus."

BUCKER JUNGMANN the ideal aircraft for military training, fully licensed for all aerobatics, 80 h.p. engine only, therefore inexpensive in purchase and running.
SERVICE CEILING WITH FULL LOAD 24,000 FEET. Although it is not usual to fly at such high altitudes in Europe, a service ceiling, at such a height does ensure that the Envoy Series II at normal altitudes has a very good performance with a rate of climb and single engine performance which gives a wide safety margin in cases of emergency.
The Envoy Series II has ample power for operating from aerodromes situated at high altitudes. For instance, at 6,000 feet with Cheetah IX engines, the take-off run, in a 5 m.p.h. wind, is approximately 300 yards, whilst if one engine should cut out at this height, the aircraft will still climb on full load at the rate of 50 feet per minute. The safety margin of the Envoy Series II is, therefore, very high, and is another factor of interest to Airline Operators.
