The Farman F.110 was a French two-seat artillery observation biplane designed and built by the Farman Aviation Works.[2]

Development

The F.110 was an effort by Farman to produce an artillery observation aircraft normally supplied to the French military by Breguet.[2] Mainly of aluminium alloy construction it was a biplane design with a tailskid landing gear.[2] Powered by a water-cooled Salmson 9Z radial piston engine which was a cause of drag because of the need for a large radiator box under the nose which compounded the already large frontal area of a radial engine.[2]

The pilot and observer had an open cockpit which had glazed panels in the sides and the floor to give the observer a good view.[2] After a first flight in 1921 the Aéronautique Militaire ordered 175 aircraft but due to a lack of experience in the company with aluminium alloy the F.110 suffered structural problems.[2] After some modification only 50 aircraft were delivered and the type was not developed further.[2] The F.110 only remained in front-line use for just over a year.[2]

In 1927 tests were made with the F.115, a F.110 with its aluminium ribs replaced with wooden ones.[1]
