The 1930s. The Fairey IIIF was a spotter reconnaissance aircraft which was built in very large numbers (for that period), over 350 being made for the Fleet Air Arm. They could be fitted with either wheels or floats, and served all over the world, operating from land bases as shown here, or from aircraft carriers using catapults to launch them.
