Stampe Vertongen SV-5 Prototype 

The SV5 prototype during manufactures trials.

Remarkable picture of the SV5 prototype taken post 1937 (due the camouflage scheme) and wearing the out-of-sequence serial S-1. The machine has still its non standard undercarriage and different nose while the original engine cowling has been replaced with the standard series production cover.

Having been allocated to the Ecole de Perfectionnement at Wevelgem, SV-5 S-27 later went on to serve as trainer and communications hack for a Fairey Fox squadron. In this new role the aircraft had a ground collision with Fox O-125 in the second half of the thirties.
