Fairey IIID: Portuguese Navegantes.

Fairey IIID: Portuguese Navegantes

The Fairey III series was a hugely successful interwar British asset. These sturdy no-nonsense biplane wee built in considerable number and saw service until the very beginning of WW2. The IIID was (with the F) one of the principal variants of the series. Sold to UK, Australia and Portugal.
In this lovely art piece, the famous RR Eagle VIII engined Fairey IIID nº 17 “Santa Cruz”, one of the IIIDs used by the Portuguese during the first successful crossing of the South Atlantic, 1922.

Artist: Igor de Loyola.
