Windham Tractor Monoplane

  Captain Windham's second monoplane was a Bleriot-type tractor of orthodox though flimsy construction. It was powered by a 35 h.p. Dutheil-Chalmers engine driving a Beedle propeller. The open fuselage was triangular in section. The machine was brought out at the Doncaster Aviation Meeting in October, 1909, where it achieved transient notoriety by collapsing while its owner was sitting in it to be photographed. After repairs, it was involved in a collision with a car while taxying, and this finally wrecked it. Span, 30 ft. Length, 25 ft.
