Phillips 1904 Multiplane
  
  Horatio F. Phillips's Multiplane of 1904 put into full-size practice his theory of the venetian-blind arrangement of superimposed wings of very narrow chord which had been demonstrated on his steam-driven model of 1893. Twenty unstaggered surfaces formed the wings of the machine, which was fitted with a cruciform tail unit, the whole being mounted on an undercarriage of three wheels. The engine was of 22 h.p. driving a tractor propeller. When tested, the Multiplane was found to be unstable longitudinally and was not successful. Weight loaded, 600 lb.
