Old pictures I

Got a couple of old pics of airplanes. Not completely sure of the identity of some of them, I’ll make a guess and I hope I can be confirmed or corrected.

This one I’m guessing is a Short Singapore, Wikipedia entry

And this info (http://sgforums.com/forums/1164/topics/161750):

“The Singapore I did not go into production, but in August 1933 the Air Ministry ordered four development aircraft from Shorts to Spec. R 3/33 for trials at the Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment and with squadrons, these being the first Mk. IIIs. The first Mk. III (K 3592) flew on 15 June 1934. Production terminated with K 8859 in June 1937 after 37 had been built for the RAF. The five production batches were K 3592-3595, K 4577-4585, K 6907 – 6922, K 8565-8568 and K 8856-8859.”


Wikipedia pic follows, pretty close match or not? 

And this very interesting link, http://theflyingboatforum.forumlaunch.net/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=534

Has these pics of the same plane that’s in my photo.

And this almost looks like a copy of my pic.

    Looks very close to me. Can’t see the slight wing sweep but the dihedral may be confusing things.

      I agree, many similarities
