Talbot Waterplane

  The Talbot Waterplane was a pusher hydro-biplane built at Fambridge, Essex, during early 1914. Both upper and lower wings were joined together by curved tips, and booms carried the biplane elevators at the front and the tailplane at the rear. The complete unit was mounted by means of struts to the boat-shaped float which contained the cockpit. The rear elevators were inter-connected to those at the front and twin rudders were set side-by-side between the rear booms. Ailerons were fitted at mid-gap between the wing-tips. The machine was powered by a water-cooled engine, flanked by vertical radiators, but was unable to rise from the water despite repeated attempts.
