Length, 50 ft. Weight empty, 125 lb.

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.
