Balliol


The Balliol was originally designed as an all-purpose advanced trainer to be fitted with an Armstrong Siddeley Mamba or Rolls-Royce Dart turboprop engine.


Three versions were produced:


Balliol T.1 three-seater with a Mamba engine, first flown in prototype form on 24 March 1948 to become the first aeroplane in the world to fly solely on turboprop power


Balliol T.2 two-seater, produced for the RAF (162) with a 928kW Rolls-Royce Merlin 35 piston engine


Sea Balliol T.21 for the Royal Navy with deck-landing capability (30 built).
