    Default Albacore floatplane-does a picture exist?

    An Albacore floatplane was tested at Fairey Aviation in 1940 but the aircraft proved not suitable for this role. I believe there is a photograph of an Albacore floatplane, maybe not the one mention. Any photograph would help my research regarding the Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment. Does anyone have a picture?

    thanks for the reply. I have found that picture but it is stamped over voiding my needs. The original photograph must be out there, meanwhile I may approach the ships model forum

    Robin,

    Read the whole thread! The IWM film clips are identified. Should'nt be too much trouble obtaining copies when things get back to normal.
