ROYAL AVIATION ENTHUSIASTS: For a considerable time the King of the Belgians has done a great deal to encourage aviation by using his aeroplane for travelling. Now the Queen of Belgium is preparing to do the same by accepting from the Aircraft Disposal Co., Ltd., a "Bristol Fighter," similar to that used so extensively by the King. Our photographs show the two machines, the one on the left being that presented to the Queen. It is finished in aluminium throughout, which makes it look very light and graceful. The machine was flown from Croydon to King Albert's private aerodrome at Brussels by Capt. Muir, and Col. Darby, General Manager of the A.D.C., made the trip as passenger in order to make formal presentation to Her Majesty.
