Macfie Circuit Biplane

  A small, fast, single-seat tractor biplane was built by Robert F. Macfie in three weeks as his entry in the 1911 Circuit of Britain event. Its 100 h.p. A.B.C. engine was not ready in time, and a 50 h.p. Gnome was substituted. The 26 ft. span wings were swept back in a vee and were of very narrow chord, which tapered from 3 ft. 6 ins. at the centre to 2 ft. 3 ins. at the tips. Triple fins were fitted. The racer was tested at Brooklands in July, 1911. Wing area, 130 sq. ft. Weight loaded, 600 lb.
