Flight, October 23, 1909



   Biplane designed somewhat on Voisin lines, but remarkable for the prevalence of ,wire-suspended members. The pilot's seat is hung on wires, as also is the steering-wheel, and the same system has been adopted for supporting the short spindles on which the balancing-planes between the main decks are mounted. This latter detail is well illustrated in the accompanying photograph; the arrangement of wires there shown applies in the main to the other members which are less clearly visible.
   A feature in the design which is uncommon is that the outrigger for the tail springs from the front struts of the main planes instead of from the rear spars. This increases the length of an already long member, and thus adds to the difficulties of transportation when dismantled, but at the same time it affords a convenient support for the engine, and otherwise makes for straightforward construction.
   The chassis combines runners and wheels, the latter being spring suspended. This portion of the machine reflects the source of the design, which we are informed originates from the makers of the Avia monoplane.
