    G'day All!
    I found these pics of a Blackburn Monoplane type D at a recent airshow in the UK.
    I had not seen this aircraft before.

    Beautiful pictures Barry. Following that link I can see that it was built for a Cyril Foggin. He died in a motor vehicle accident in France on the 30th of July 1918.
