Molesworth Triplane

  The Mackensie-Hughes Triplane was redesigned during August, 1910, and rebuilt by H. B. Molesworth as the Molesworth Triplane, retaining its name Britannia. A 60 h.p. E.N.V. "F" engine was installed in a forward position, following experience of power-loss and over-heating in the machine's original form. One two-bladed propeller with direct drive was fitted, and a new monoplane horizontal tail was mounted on top of the upper longerons, the rudder being transferred to the rear.

The Molesworth-Hughes triplane was modified from the Mackenzie-Hughes Britannia but failed to fly on test at Brooklands in 1911.
