J.A.P.-Harding Monoplane

  The J.A.P.-Harding Monoplane was constructed by J. A. Prestwich and Co. Ltd., of Tottenham, London, N., for the designer H. J. Harding, a racing-cyclist. It was an adaptation of the Bleriot Monoplane and was fitted with the eight-cylinder 40 h.p. J.A.P. engine. In its early state, it had rectangular wings with large ailerons, but very soon these were abandoned in favour of warping wings of the standard Bleriot pattern. The machine was first flown at Tottenham marshes on 10th April, 1910, and later at the Blackpool Aviation Meeting and in France by Harding; it is now part of the National Aeronautical Collection of the Science Museum, London, S.W.7. Span, 30 ft. Length, 27 ft. Wing area, 230 sq. ft. Weight empty, 510 lb. Maximum speed, 50 m.p.h.
