THE WHITELEY BANK SCHOOL OF GLIDING: On the left Mr. Merriam is seen getting out of his machine after a trial flight. Mr. Newman, who had a large share in building the machine, is standing by the nose. On the right, the Merriam-Newman glider is seen just before touching after a flight.
THE HANDLEY PAGE "HANLEY": Three-quarter rear view.
THE HANDLEY PAGE "HANLEY" TORPEDO 'PLANE: The front view gives a very good idea of the divided undercarriage which gives accommodation for the torpedo. The machine is fitted with slotted planes, and has slotted ailerons, which are found to be effective right up to the stalling angle.
Another view of the Handley Page "Hanley'' torpedo 'plane, 450 h.p. Napier "Lion" engine: Three-quarter front view. The slots can be clearly seen in the picture. Although this machine is officially known as the "Hanley," it is affectionately called the "Heintz," owing to the number of levers which the pilot has to operate.

THE HANDLEY PAGE "HANLEY": Some constructional details of the wings. 1, partly-sectioned view of a portion of the auxiliary aerofoil. In shape this resembles the famous Joukowsky wing section. 2, shows the construction of an aileron. Note the triangulated construction. The shackle near the trailing edge receives the wire to the top aileron, while the fitting on the nose fo the rib shown in more detail in the inset sketch, is for the return cable. 3, section of the end portion of a built-up box spar. Note the triangular section corner strip, which provides large glued area. In 4 is shown one of the double lattice ribs which carry the brackets on which the auxiliary aerofoil is mounted. The nose of the main aerofoil is formed by thin three-ply, bent over the small curved strip screwed to the bracket. 5, details of the locking pin and spar fitting on the lower plane at the point where the wing is joined for folding. A lever is used for pulling back the locking bolt when the vertical slide at the back has been raised. 6, details of the slot operating mechanism. The tube from the pilot's controls carries on its front end a worm, which engages with a worm wheel on the transverse tube in the leading edge. Rotation of this tube raises or lowers the auxiliary aerofoil through levers hinged to lugs on the tube, thus opening or closing the slot. 7, inter-plane strut socket on the lower plane rear spar. 8, lower spar, with bracket for aileron hinge.
THE HANDLEY PAGE "HANLEY": Some constructional details. 1, View of the engine mounting. 2, Attachment of sloping strut to vertical strut and longeron. 3, Brackets for attachment of engine tubes and slot control gear. 4, Lower attachment of sloping strut to wing root spar. The lug projecting forward carries the slot control tube. 5, General view of front portion of fuselage with lower wing spar roots, sloping tubes, etc.

The Dayton-Wright "Chummy" Training Biplane: A two-seater side-by-side machine, fitted with a Le Rhone 80 h.p. engine. In September last a student of the Dayton-Wright Co., K. M. Lane, who had never previously touched the controls of a 'plane, started to take instruction on one of these machines early in the morning, and that evening made his first solo flight. His total instruction time was 4 hrs. 26 mins. His instructor was W. E. Lees.
