A.V. Roe beside crashed Avro No.1 Triplane
Seemingly unscathed, and apparently rather proud, A.V. Roe stands beside his crashed Avro No.1 Triplane at Wembley, 24 December 1910 after attempting a turn. He was greatly handicapped in his experiments by lack of funds, which resulted in lack of power for his triplane. He persevered and became one of the most powerful influences in British aviation.
