Flight, December 30, 1911.



   Two types of monoplane were represented. The first was of a modified Bleriot type with flat stabilizing tail and wheel and skid undercarriage, the second was of the low centre of gravity type. As the first of these models presents no striking departure from accepted practice, we will confine our description to the latter of the two, of which a sketch is produced herewith.
   The body of the machine is constructed on the box-girder principle and to preserve its excellent streamline form is completely covered in with fabric. Arranged above the pilot on a superstructure of wood cross-braced with steel wire are the motor and the wings. The landing gear is characteristic for its extreme simplicity, consisting merely of a pair of skids proceeding forward from the fuselage and a pair of wheels, mounted on a common axle attached thereto by means of channel steel outriggers and rubber straps. The flat stabilising tail is roughly semi-circular in shape and flies circumference foremost, the elevator, a rectangular flap, being hinged to its rear edge.

   A 50-h.p. Gnome-engined monoplane is exhibited here. Like many more machines in the Show, it does not seem to have changed one whit. Since last year, its main peculiarity is that its body, totally enclosed with fabric, is slung below the wings, the engine, however, being mounted on a level with their leading edge.
