They are also employed to locate on a "luggage rack" which enables the aircraft to carry its own spare wings as it has been designed to be capable of carrying all its own spares. The fo...

Volkswagen- powered canard called the VariEze, which has a mainplane of greatly in creased aspect ratio. The design fol lows the same principles as those of the VariViggen but is aimed at ease of construction (hence its name) and an efficient performance...

All the lift is in an upward sense, fore- and mainplanes combining to j contribute to a better short-field per formance. The wide lift distribution results in far greater longitudinal stability and trimming power, giving a usable e.g. range ...

Twelve flights totalling 5hr 45min were made in the original configura tion and they resulted in several modifications to improve handling. Mainplane dihedral was reduced and the rudders were extended. The 85 h.p. Continental engine was replaced by a 160 h.p. Lycoming; larger mainwheels and brakes were also fitted. Both the single- a...

For control a canard surface is placed ahead and below the mainplane, with nothing more than a 2in-diameter bowsprit ...

The wings were of unequal chord, and only the top and bottom mainplanes had ailerons. The A.E.G. PEI was an armoured triplane which provided the basis for a later biplane trench-strafer, the A.E.G. b.J.I. The engine was the 195 h.p. Bern. The Albatros L.36 was ...

Rather unusual is the attachment of the one-piece tail- plane which is threaded through the fin and pinned to four fittings, two transverse, two fore and aft, like those on the mainplane. This arrangement is desirable from the manufacturers' point of view, being good for lining up and interchangeability. The elevator mass balance is mounted on a lever anchored in a box withi...
