Bristol 90 Berkeley     J7405


                                        This handsome machine (well, I think it is) is the third prototype of the Bristol Model 90 Berkeley.
                                        The aircraft was built in response to Air Ministry Spec 26/23 (ultimately won by the Hawker Horsley)
                                        calling for a large biplane to be built around the 650 hp Rolls Royce Condor III engine, and capable
                                        of carrying a 500 lb bomb over a range of 1,200 miles.  Quite a feat for 1923.   All three samples
                                        of the Berkeley were eventually flown by the RAF for experimental purposes, the production contract,
                                        as stated above, being given to the Horsley.
