Flight, October 19, 1912.


   ACCESSORIES such as lamps and hooters, which form a by no means insignificant feature of the modern motor car, have as yet been absent from the aeroplane, but there is a machine down at Hendon just now belonging to the Grahame-White Co. which attracts considerable attention in its possession of these fittings, and among the sketches we give this week are two or three showing the aforementioned etceteras. As a matter of fact, however, they are of comparatively minor interest on a machine like the Henry Farman, notwithstanding that it has long been one of the most universally well-known flyers in existence. This particular model, as it happens, is a new design to the extent of having one of the latest 80-h.p. Gnome engines, and although built on the same lines is much smaller in size than the 70-h.p. biplane that has been doing such good missionary work in the country with its "Wake Up England" motto. It is designed for a speed somewhere in the order of 60 miles an hour, and, constructionally, it is characterised by the great superiority of the span of the upper plane as compared with the lower. Indeed, the upper plane is almost twice the span of the lower plane. Its ailerons or balancing flaps, too, occupy the whole length of the trailing edges of the upper main plane extensions.
   At the rear, a slight modification will be noticed in the shape of the rudder, which has a curved entering edge, carried forward of the rudder post. Near the engine, a little detail of interest is the very neatly-arranged combined petrol and oil-tank, which has a capacity for 15 gallons of fuel and 7 gallons of castor oil. This feature forms the subject of one of our sketches, as also does one of the nicely-made joints in the control wires.

THE NEW HENRY FARMAN BIPLANE. - Extensive changes have been made in the construction of this new machine, the top and bottom pairs of tail outriggers being arranged in triangular form, and the tail surface itself being purely a monoplane type of organ with single vertical rudder. The position of the engine has also been changed and by virtue of its present position midway between the planes the constructors have been enabled to reduce the height of the landing chassis, thus contributing to its robust construction.
