Mines Biplane

  Nicknamed the "Coffee-Stall", the freakish Mines Biplane appeared at the 1909 Doncaster Flying Meeting and was the creation of Edward Mines. The machine was a single-seat pusher with wings of 14 ft. span and of 6 ft. chord. No tail was fitted, and control was by means of a rudder at each wing-tip hinged to the front outer interplane struts, and by a strut-operated elevator on the leading-edge of the upper wings. The lower wing-tips were also adjustable. The engine was an air-cooled vee-twin of about 10 h.p. with chain-drive to the propeller shaft. The Mines Biplane was not successful and did not fly.
