Armstrong Whitworth AW.15 Atalanta: Use the Fastest.

The Atalanta was built in answer to an Imperial Airways 1930 requirement for a up-to-date airliner for its African lines, to cover mainly the Kenya to South Africa route. First flown in 1933, this elegant high-wing four-engined thing of beauty proved to be fairly modern and profitable. With only 8 produced far from a outstanding success, but it served Imperial Airways nicely first in Africa an later in India. There some of them ended their lives in military service with the Indian AF during the early days of WW2.

The daring style of Frank Newbould.
