For those of you who have looked at our sample pages of the New Year's Day 1910 edition of Flight Magazine, you may like to know how Mr A.V. Roe got on with his 'Friday' flight which was caught by the Flight photographer and published on the bottom of page 4.
Unfortunately, this was the result!
Alliot Verdon Roe 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.
I wonder which of these two photographs would be chosen for publication in this day and age?
