BIPLANE of the tail-less type, with a monoplane elevator in front. The main planes have a span of 28 ft., whilst the cord is 4 ft. 6 in. The gap at the centre is 5 ft. 6 in., diminishing to 4 ft. 6 in. at the tips, the lower plane being curved upwards at the ends. Lateral stability is maintained by means of ailerons pivoted on the end stanchions, at an angle of 450 to the horizontal. The ailerons are inter-connected, having a constant angle of 900 between them, so that the movement of one in a certain direction is followed by a corresponding movement of the other in the opposite direction.

WING SECTIONS. - The above diagrams afford an interesting comparison of the wing sections of aeroplanes exhibited at Olympia. They are all drawn to a common scale, but have been set at an arbitrary angle of incidence, which does not necessarily represent that of the aeroplane In actual flight.
