34. The Union Arrow Biplane
has its main planes sloping backwards at a very pronounced angle. Its fuselage, which is of rectangular section, is very deep and narrow, and tapers to a vertical knife-edge at the rear, where are carried the tail planes, which consist of a fixed stabilising plane mounted on top of the fuselage, a divided elevator, and a vertical fixed fin, to the trailing edge of which is hinged the rudder. The chassis is of a very simple type, and consists of two pairs of steel tubes, each pair of which forms a "V" as seen from the side. The tubular axle rests in the angle between the chassis struts, from which it is sprung by means of rubber shock-absorbers. In addition to the slope backwards and the dihedral angle, the main planes are heavily staggered forward.
