Hesham,

Will you keep in mind that there is no direct
need to 'recreate' the Avro Heritage site..
Interested members can visit the site directly if they like..

Hi.

the Avro 557 was originally a single seat light monoplane Project,powered by one
Wolseley Viper engine.

Its good that you did post the doc and images here as the Avro Heritage site appears to have removed the original files

Do you have a source for the information about the 557 monoplane other than the Avro Aircraft since 1908 Putnam volume?

Hi,

I have some suspicious about some Projects from Avro Heritage,they were not allocated to any
Specification.

For example,Avro-564 was a two seat fighter monoplane Project of 1924,was it involved in any Contest ?.

Yes there are a lot of questions. Of course not all designs were drawn up to fulfil specifications but in the 1920s in particular it was hard to justify building anything as a private venture. In the 1930s and the advent of the RAF expansion plans, and into the 1940s, most effort was naturally put into pursuing Air Ministry requirements. A lot of these are probably no more than quick concepts even though they appear to have been allocated project numbers. However without some explanation as to the source of the drawings and some idea of the context it is hard to make judgement

That's right Schneiderman,

but in private venture,the Avro Heritage mentioned this,for Avro-564,unfortunately no drawing,
but the Avro-565 was relate to this fighter,and also a mystery ?.

The side view drawing appears to have RAF markings but at this date there was no obvious requirement for a new two-seat fighter. However Condor powered two-seaters, torpedo bomber and light bomber, were requested for 25/23 and 26/23 so perhaps the design started life to meet one of these.
