First registered 12.3.29 as G-AAFG (C of R 1912) to the Bristol Aeroplane Co Ltd., Filton, Bristol, Gloucestershire. Also flown in "Class B" markings as "R-4". The Type 110A, registered G-AAFG, first flew with the Titan engine, piloted by Cyril Uwins, on 25.10.29, after its appearance with a mock up of the Neptune engine at the Olympia Aero Show in July that year, where its well-appointed cabin impressed visitors but gained no orders. The Neptune was installed in January 1930 and testing proceeded satisfactorily

Written off (damaged beyond repair) when crashed in a landing accident at Filton Aerodrome, Bristol, Gloucestershire early in February 1931; as there were no orders in sight, it was decided to abandon the project and the aircraft (the sole example built) was scrapped. Registration G-AAFG cancelled by the Air Ministry 2.12.31 due to "destruction or permanent withdrawl from use of aircraft"
