Billing Biplane

   The Billing Biplane, known also as the "Oozeley Bird", was a single-seat tractor built by Eardley Billing during 1911 from C. A. Moreing's discarded Voisin. Billing was, at that time, in charge of the Lane Gliding School at Brooklands. The engine was a 40 h.p. E.N.V. "D" and the machine was used by N. S. Percival at Brooklands on 1st. August, 1911, to complete the tests for his Royal Aero Club Aviator's Certificate No. III. The fuselage was covered with fabric after the machine had been flown at first with it uncovered.
