J.Bruce British Aeroplanes 1914-1918 (Putnam)
Grahame-White Experimental Twin
THE serial number A.8964 was allotted to a large Grahame-White biplane of which little is known, save that it had twin airscrews. Whether that implied twin engines or a central inboard power plant is uncertain; and it is equally uncertain whether the aircraft was completed.
Grahame-White Experimental Two-Seater
THIS angular little biplane obviously owed something to the D.H.6, for which type the Grahame-White Aviation company received its first contract on January 13th, 1917. In fact, the Grahame-White machine appeared to incorporate some D.H.6 components, and there can be little doubt that it was designed in 1917. The Grahame-White two-seater reflected the square-cut wings, external guide pulleys for aileron control cables, strut-linked ailerons, and communal cockpit of the D.H.6, but had rather better lines. The engine appeared to be the 75 h.p. Rolls-Royce Hawk, and an American look was given to the aircraft by the use of a frontal radiator which was similar in shape to those used on contemporary American aeroplanes.
