Drawing of the Defiant 'Special Features' AA413. The enlarged tail was added after the initial April 18, 1946 retracting but the general arrangement still incorrectly has the Merlin XX engine length. The original drawing had standard tail surfaces. Such minor errors were not considered important on general arrangement drawings.
Pleasant view of Cierva C.6C J8068 (complete with 'New Type Park; number 16) performing at Hendon, 1936.
The unmarked C.19, Mk.IV experimental machine G-AAHM at Hamble in July 1931. In deep conversation behind the Autogiro can be seen test pilot Rawson, left, and the designer, Cierva.
