The single-seat tractor Creese-Dederich Monoplane was designed by A. G. Creese and appeared at the 1909 Blackpool Aviation Meeting. The engine was the three-cylinder 30 h.p. Anzani. Unorthodox features were the telescopic wings, which contained outwards-sliding panels which operated during banking to add area to the wing which was depressed, and also the system of compressed-air shock-absorbers fitted to the undercarriage. Span, 25 ft. (extending to 28 ft.). Length, 24 ft. Wing area, 168 sq. ft. Weight empty, 450 lb. Maximum speed, 30 m.p.h.
