Not to be confused with the later Bristol M.1, commonly known as the Bristol Monoplane.
Design and development
The single-seat monoplane was designed in 1911 by George Challenger and Archibald Low and two were built at Filton in February 1911. It used features from both the Bleriot (warping wings) and Antionette (triangular-section fuselage) designs. The Monoplane was powered by a 50 hp Gnome engine with a two-bladed propeller, the landing gear was what later be called conventional landing gear with a tail-skid.
No. 35 was sent to Larkhill for testing before being exhibited at Olympia in March 1911. No. 36 was displayed at St. Petersburg in April 1911. No. 35 was damaged at Larkhill when it failed to take-off and was not repaired.
