The Blackburn Iris was a British three-engined biplane flying boat of the 1920s. Although only five Irises were built it was used as a long-ranged maritime reconnaissance aircraft by the Royal Air Force where it equipped a squadron for 4 years being used to carry out a number of notable long-distance flights. The final version of the Iris the Iris Mark V was developed into the aircraft that replaced it in Squadron service the Blackburn Perth.
