Japanese Blackburn F.2 Lincock Mk.III

Two Blackburn F.2 Lincock Mk. III were imported by Mitsubishi in 1932 to be tested by the IJNAF. The aircraft exhibited good handling but performance left much to be desired for a fighter. One later became civilian but I couldn't find the civilian registration.

Hello George!
According to the "Golden Years of Aviation" website (www.airhistory.org.uk) the Blackburn Lincock was registered as J-BEPG in September 1934 in the name of Mitsubishi.
Hope this helps!
