First flight 1920s

The Farman B.2 was a 1920s French biplane designed as a light day bomber. Only one was built.[1]

Development

Farman Aviation Works designed and built in 1924 what was a bulky unequal span two-bay biplane for use as a day bomber.[1] The pilot had a cockpit forward of the wing leading edge, the observer/gunner had a cockpit in a cut-out in the wing trailing edge.[1] The B.2 was tested with different combinations of engines and radiators and it required modification to the fin and rudder for problems with directional stability.[1] Despite all these modifications the aircraft did not meet the required performance and was not ordered into production.[1]
