Farman-XXII, Farman-XXIIbis, Farman-XXII floatplane

20k b/w drawing "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.147

Farman-XXII was very similar to its predecessors Farman XV, XVI and XX. Major difference - strengthened landing gear, using U-shaped steel tubes instead traditional N-struts.

Since 1915 - serves as trainer.

Typo on the picture! "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.165

In 1916 few Farman-XXII were installed on floats (identical to those used for Sikorsky S-5A). Each float fast installed separately using struts and bracing wires. Wing box was strengthened by adding tilted struts supporting upper wing tips.

Seen with the Black Sea Fleet in 1916... 1918.

Farman-XXIIbis differed by more powerful 100hp engine and strengthened gondola. In training schools it was also often used with 80hp Gnome or Kalep engines. Farman-XXIIbis was built in substantial amounts by domestic plants, and could be seen in pilots schools as late as 1923.
