Aerial Wheel Monoplane

  The Aerial Wheel was one of the most unorthodox of the machines entered for the 1912 Military Trials at Salisbury Plain, it was given the entry number 18 and arrived at Larkhill for the contest, but did not take part in the tests and remained hidden in its shed.
  A side-by-side two-seat canard tractor monoplane, it was powered by a 50 h.p. N.E.C. engine, the crew being seated at the leading-edge of the swept-back wings. The designers were Ralph Platts and George Sturgess and the machine was built at Birmingham by the Aerial Wheel Syndicate Ltd., of Mablethorpe, Lines.

Aerial Wheel monoplane. The design of this 1912 monoplane concentrated on the rough field performance for the Military Trials, but its flying ability was never tested.
