De Bolotoff Triplane

  Prince Serge de Bolotoff completed his large Voisin-type tractor triplane at Brooklands towards the end of 1913. The engine was a 120 h.p. four-cylinder Panhard which drove a two-bladed propeller. The tailwheel was augmented by a pair of short skids, and further skids were mounted at the tips of the wings and of the unusually large tail unit. Taxying tests were made at Brooklands in November, 1913, where the machine was damaged by a gust of wind while on the ground.
