Geest

  Dr. Waldmer Geest began experimenting with stable, tailless, wings in 1896. He based his work on his observations of hawks and seagulls and developed his Mowe (seagull) wing. Unlike a normal straight wing his patented wing was designed to compensate for forward or lateral gusts by a varying angle of incidence and dihedral throughout the wing planform. Six Geest Mowe monoplanes were constructed before the war and demonstrated excellent stability characteristics.
