This neat monoplane was a smaller and more streamlined derivate of the company previous Mercury monoplane. Build in 1912 in answer to and order placed by just flight-qualified Cyril E. Foggin. It proved to be a very able performer, much better than its ancestors.
Gorgeous pic of the this lovely survivor owned by the Shuttleworth Collection. The Type D was the first Blackburn aircraft with rudder operated by a foot bar and a wing-warping control wheel on the control column top.
