THE PRINCE HENRY CIRCUIT, 1914.
MACHINES IN PRINCE HENRY CIRCUIT.
The Schwade Biplane is the only machine of the pusher type with a rotary motor entered in the competition. It is somewhat reminiscent of the Henry Farman biplane, having a very pronounced overhang of the top plane. The engine is an 80 h.p. Stahlhertz rotary motor mounted in the rear end of the nacelle.

32. The Schwade Biplane
is of the "pusher" type, and is to all intents and purposes a copy of the Henry Farman biplane. It differs from that well-known machine in minor details only, and does not, therefore, need a lengthy description here. The engine fitted is an 80 h.p. Stahlhertz rotary motor, mounted in the rear of the nacelle. The chassis is similar to that of the large span H. Farman biplane flown by Carr in the Aerial Derby this year, and consists of four Us of steel tubes, the lower portion of which is joined in pairs to form short skids. The main planes are, like those of the H. Farman, characterised by a very pronounced overhang to the top plane, the weight of which, when the machine is on the ground, is taken by wires passing over king-posts on top of the upper plane. The weight fully loaded is 1,532 lbs., and the loading a little over 3 lbs. per sq. ft. The speed is 60 m.p.h. with an 80 h.p. Stahlhertz engine.
