Lee-Richards Annular Biplane

  The principle of the annular wing was the subject of a patent by G. J. A. Kitchen of Lancaster which was bought by Cedric Lee from Kitchen. Lee was joined late in 1910 by G. Tilghman Richards as an engineer on the project, which was built during 1911 as a single-seat tractor biplane with superimposed annular wings and was powered by the 50 h.p. Gnome engine. The machine was taken to Famine Point at Heysham for its trials, which were not particularly satisfactory, and the aeroplane and its hangar were wrecked during a gale on 4th-5th November, 1911.
