With retractable undercarriage and stressed skin it was capable of 240mph, outperforming all of the fighters in service with the RAF in 1935. The design was modified to operate as a bomber for the RAF.

Bristol Boxkite
This is a replica of a Bristol Boxkite now owned and flown by the Shuttleworth Collection. Originally this example was built for the film 'Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines'. In the air it is a most impressive sight, but it is flown only in conditions of almost complete calm. The design was originated in 1909 by Henry Farman, an Englishman who lived in France, and was much copied and, in Britain, the result was the Bristol Boxkite. Although essentially civil in origin, the boxkite had a clear military potential and in March 1911 four examples were ordered by the War Office. Boxkites were used in many parts of the world, including Australia and India; they were the first British aircraft to be ordered for export. Although very successful, the type was cumbersome and had a relatively short life, with the last specimen flying in Australia late in 1915.
