BURGESS I SCOUT

  In 1910, the W. Starling Burgess Co. of Marblehead, Mass., a manufacturer of speedboats, produced a Curtiss pusher type seaplane with the assistance of Greely S. Curtis (no relation of Glenn H. Curtiss). The success of this machine encouraged further activity, and the firm obtained a licence to build established Wright designs, starting with the Models B and C (respectively Burgess Models F and J, Army Serials 11 and 18). The 1913 Burgess Model I (serial 17) illustrated above was a single example for the Army using Wright features and a single 60 h.p. Sturtevant engine. The I was used as a scout in the Philippines and crashed in 1915. Span 39 ft. 10 in.; length 31 ft. 4 in.; gross weight, 2,038 lb.; speed, 59 m.p.h.; rate of climb 210 ft./min.
