The Revival of the "Pusher." - There are probably a good many people who have been under the impression that the old "pusher" type of aeroplane was dead. Messrs.Vickers, Ltd., appear to be among those who think otherwise, for they have just brought out a new school machine which is of the pusher type. The cockpits are arranged to reproduce, as far as possible, "Vimy'' conditions, and the new machine, the "V.I.M." is intended for tuition work preparatory to instruction on the "Vimy."
The Do.Cs.I: This machine was a twin float seaplane somewhat similar to the Hansa-Brandenburg.
THE DO.D.I: This land machine is entirely without wire or cable bracing, the wings being of the cantilever type and the fuselage having metal covering. Note the faired undercarriage members.
THE DO.D.I: Three-quarter rear view.
