Penteado (Chauviere).

   Modified form of biplane so constructed that the two decks converge at the extremities. They are further so arranged that at the junction it is the trailing edge of the upper deck which connects with the leading edge of the lower deck; that is to say, the upper deck, instead of being directly over the lower deck, is a full chord in advance. The purpose served by this arrangement is not clear. In the centre there is a gap approximately equal to the chord, but towards the extremities it seems decks become more and more in tandem, and there is no evidence of any difference in the angle of incidence of the lower deck which would afford a compensating factor. It can hardly be said either that the system simplifies the construction to any appreciable extent, as might be supposed would be one of the objects in connecting the two decks in this way.
   Provision is made for warping the lower deck; at the rear is a tail comprising a rudder and an elevator. The engine, a 5-cyl. R.E.P., is in front and drives a tractor screw.

Hanging from the roof is the gas-bag of one of the Zodiac dirigibles, and in the far distance the great yellow spherical balloon of the Continental Co.
