Vickers Velos

Larry Milberry, Aviation in Canada, McGraw-Hill Ryerson 1979
The sole Vickers Velos sitting at its moorings. Built for surveying in 1927, it proved difficult to fly and when it sank in the same year the design was not pursued. When I first found this image I mistook it for the short lived  Dayton Wright F. P. 2, an aircraft with a similar look built 5 years previously and with a similar story.
