The first non-airship aircraft built by Vickers was a series of seven monoplanes based on designs by Robert Esnault-Pelterie, with fuselages made of steel tubing braced with piano wire and covered with fabric. Seen here is Monoplane No 2, later acquired for use on the 1912 Australian Antarctic expedition.
The R.E.P. monoplane was one of the first to be built in this country by Vickers, Ltd. It had an R.E.P. semi-radial or "fan" shaped air-cooled engine. Steel construction was employed.
