FSX/FS2004/P3D – Percival D1 Gull Prototype

FSX/FS2004/P3D – Percival D1 Gull Prototype. Designed by Edgar Percival using the Basil Henderson patented wing construction used on the Hendy Hobo & Hendy 302, it was Manufactured by the British Aircraft Company, Maidstone, Kent, under contract to Edgar Percival. First flight in March 1932. Although bearing a strong resemblance to a scaled up Hendy, there were quite a lot of different features incorporated. More wing area, wider fuselage to accomodate 3 people in a staggered layout, wing folding & a Percival designed spatted undercarriage.
