Higgins Monoplane

  During 1911 Henry Higgins revised his glider of 1910 and turned it into a tail-first pusher monoplane by the addition of a two-cylinder engine of 10-12 h.p. This was mounted below the trailing-edge of the wings and drove a propeller of 7 ft. 2 ins. diameter. Unsuccessful tests were conducted at Cleeve Hill, Cheltenham. Wing area, 196 sq.ft.
