Flight, July 5, 1913.


   A pioneer who is perhaps not so well remembered as he should be is Hargrave, who is, of course, famous as the inventor of the box kite, but whose researches in aviation generally are less well known. He read a most interesting and instructive series of papers before the Royal Society of New South Wales, and in 1885 he succeeded in demonstrating before that assembly the successful flight of a model that was propelled by flapping wings.
