/ Amiot 110
The Amiot 110 was designed as a contender in the, lightweight interceptor contest, competing against nine other types.
It was a braced parasol wing monoplane with an all-metal structure and metal skinned fuselage.
The first prototype had a fabric covered wing, replaced by metal skinning in the second.
It had fixed, conventional landing gear, the stub wing behind the gear was part of a jettisonable fuel tank.
It first flew in June 1928 and looked a promising candidate to win the lightweight interceptor contest.
However it crashed on 1 July 1929, killing the pilot due to several loose rivets and integrity flaws.
No further production went ahead after a second prototype was deemed inferior to the Nieuport-Delage NiD 62.
