PEMBERTON BILLING monoplane (PB.l and 3) (Woolston & Park Royal)

  The machine was a small pusher, based on a tubular chassis on a tricycle undercarriage, tested unsuccessfully at Woolston in 1909.
  The wings were extended aft at their inboard ends, terminating in flaps for lateral and directional control. On the second version the pilot was enclosed in a nacelle. It was the second version that lifted off briefly on several occasions, finishing with a jump of 60ft and a crash which injured PB.

  Power:
   PB.1 Pemberton Billing valveless rotary
   PB.3 JAP two-cylinder air-cooled


PEMBERTON BILLING monoplane (PB.5)

  This was similar to PB.3 with the addition of a front elevator. It was not flown, but was sold to pay debts, while PB was recovering from his injuries.

  Power: 25-40hp NEC four-cylinder inline water-cooled twostroke.
