I got the photo from the Fright Archive, as do Avia Deja Vu, but that's the one! Well done

The original article from 1925 just called it the Dart Seaplane

Reckon it's a Boeing 377 Super Guppy innit?

I think that's an airship looking at the amount of transparent panels.

That was my first impression too, but it is a fixed wing jobber!

Found a better pic and the manufacturer - just looking for the model.

edit: I think the site is incorrect, but says it's a Breda.

I'm gonna be out all day tomorrow, so hopefully it'll go tonight, but carry on if you find the image or a clearer confirmatory one!

This is what I found. The text says Breda but that's all.

That's it mate, well found

I found that same image in the FA, it's also on Avia Deja Vue as usual, but it was too good, so I got the less detailed image from L'Aérophile but you're too good for that !!

Wish I knew.

However, an external photo shows a roof ADF aerial on the fuselage left side, so my bet it's the base for manual rotation of the loop antenna.

I bet it is a "DF" and not an "ADF".
