Pictured is a biplane, but it is related to the 2 winged plane, The Short S.25 Sunderland which was a British flying boat patrol bomber, developed and constructed by Short Brothers for the Royal Air Force (RAF). The aircraft took its service name from the town (latterly, city) and port of Sunderland in North East England.

Heinkel 59 seaplane bearing red crosses shot down by Pilot Officer J
Heinkel 59 seaplane bearing red crosses shot down by Pilot Officer J. Allan of 54 Squadron over the Eastern Channel and alleged to have been used for mine - laying. It is seen here beached at Deal where it had been towed by a Navy vessel.
The Heinkel He 59 was a twin-engined German biplane designed in 1930, resulting from a requirement for a torpedo bomber and reconnaissance aircraft able to operate on wheeled landing gear or twin-floats.
