THE HOWARD-WINDHAM MONOPLANE.

To the Editor of FLIGHT.
  SIR, - I am enclosing a photo of the Howard-Windham monoplane which I have been working on for some time past at Wembley Park. Although the photo is not a good one, it clearly shows the general outlines of the machine, with the propeller, which is one off Capt- Windham's biplane. This machine is now fitted with a new 6-cyl. Dutheil-Chalmers engine and we hope to try it within a week or two.
  Since it was shown at the Olympia, it has had several new patents put on and we expect great things from it.
  Yours faithfully, C. GURNEY GRIME.
