English Electric P.5 Kingston
The English Electric P.5 Kingston was a British twin-engine biplane flying boat built by English Electric.
When the English Electric Company was formed in 1918 from several companies, the Phoenix Dynamo Manufacturing Company brought with it the two prototype Phoenix P.5 Cork reconnaissance flying boats.
Redesigned, the Cork reappeared as the English Electric P.5 Kingston with a production order for five aircraft.
