The Vickers Type 264 Valentia
The Vickers Type 264 Valentia biplane first flew in 1935 as a replacement for the Vickers Victoria.
The Valentia was the mainstay of the Middle Eastern transport force.
It was characterized by it's tail-wheel rather than a tail-skid which made it ideal for landing on rough airstrips.
