The Felixstowe Fury was an experimental bomber, a triplane, and a seaplane, built in an effort to be the first aircraft to cross the Atlantic.

The five-engine Felixstowe Fury flew well. During one test flight the aircraft stayed aloft in excess of six hours without developing any serious problems.

On August 11, 1919, during further testing, it appears that a wingtip caught a wave upon takeoff, sending the aircraft into the sea. It was damaged beyond repair.

No other aircraft of its type were produced.
