Moon Moonbeam

  The Moonbeam was a single-seat tractor monoplane designed and built during 1910 by Rowland Moon of Southampton, Hants. It resembled the Demoiselle, and was fitted with tapering wings mounted on a fuselage of steel tubing. The engine was a four-cylinder 20 h.p. J.A.P. with a 6 ft. propeller. Span, 24 ft. Weight empty, 260 lb.

THE "MOONBEAM."

  Thinking it a matter of some interest, I enclose you photos of my aeroplane ("Moonbeam"). It is a monoplane, built rather on the lines of the "Santos," though of light steel tubing, planes having a tapering chord and a span of 24 ft. A 4-cyl. 20-h.p. J.A.P. engine is fitted, and a 6-ft. wooden propeller.
  The machine is manipulated from a single wheel, which is mounted on a spherical trunnion, thus taking all control.
  The machine weighs about 260 lbs., of which 160 lbs. is engine and propeller.
  I regret not having a photo of plane during flight, although several satisfactory flights have been made.
  The machine has been under trial for some weeks. It was made in my own shops at Southampton.
