Amiot 110 Warbird Information

Amiot 110

National origin: France
Manufacturer: Amiot-SECM
Designer: M. Detartre
First flight: June 1928
Number built: 2

The Amiot 110, also known as the Amiot-SECM 110, was a French prototype interceptor designed and built in 1929.

Development

The 110 was designed as a contender in the so-called "Jockey" lightweight interceptor contest in which it competed against 9 other types. It was of all-metal construction, with fabric wing skinning. Basically a parasol monoplane, it was fitted with a jettisonable aerofoil-section fuel tank inserted in the fuselage aft of the main undercarriage.

Operational history

It first flew in June 1928, and looked a promising candidate to win the "Jockey" contest. However, it crashed on 1 July 1929 due to several loose rivets and integrity flaws, and no further production went ahead.
