Flight 1927-09
Flight
PRIVATE FLYING IN 1920: This Austin Whippet and B.E.2e, taken at Hendon in 1920, comprised the fleet owned by Mr. A. J. Greenshields, who is now in the Argentina, where he still flies the Austin Whippet as well as a Potez VIII two-seater fitted with a 70 h.p. Anzani engine. He is the only British private owner in that country
HOOTON AIR PAGEANT: (3) Mrs. Eliott-Lynn (left) on her S.E. 5a beating Capt. Sparks on S.E.5 "TO" by 2 secs, in the High Power Handicap.
TABLE-TOP AERONAUTICS: This is a photograph of Toydon Aerodrome, showing in the foreground an Avro 504K and behind a Bristol "Bloodhound." It is the work of Mr. R. S. Allon of South Woodford, the machines being constructed - with the help of "Flight" scale drawings - to a scale of 1/4 in. to the foot out of cardboard. Unfortunately we cannot recognise the pilot standing outside the "Trust House." Our readers will, we think, agree that it is all quite realistic.
VICTORY:- Flight-Lieut. S. N. Webster, A.F.C., crossing the line, and thus winning back the Schneider Trophy for Great Britain. His average speed for the course was 281-54 m.p.h.
GREAT BRITAIN GOING STRONG IN THE 1927 SCHNEIDER CONTEST :- Flight-Lieut Worsley on the Supermarine-Napier (direct drive) S.5 No. 6 being overtaken by Flight-Lieut. Kinkead on the Gloster-Napier No. IVb.
THE SCHNEIDER TROPHY RACE: Flight-Lieut. Webster flying straight, not quite so straight, and towing in the Supermarine S.5, on which ultimately he won the race. These photographs were taken during the navigability, etc., tests.
THE SCHNEIDER TROPHY RACE: Lieut. Worsley, in his Supermarine S.5, being towed out for the eliminating trials and, on the right, during the taxying test.
PREPARING FOR "THE DAY": One of two of the British Schneider Trophy Challengers make trial flights at Venice. Sqdn.-Leader Slatter, on the Supermarine-Napier S-5, after the first practice flights on September 10.
THE SCHNEIDER TROPHY RACE: View of the machines during the 6-hours' mooring test. The machine in the foreground is the Supermarine S.5 on which, later, Webster won the race.
The Zurich Meeting: The Italian team of Fiats.
Hooton Air Pageant: Mr. R. Williams dropping over the temporary fence in the landing competition on Moth "MQ". His fellow club member, Mr. Costa, tried on the same machine, and got second place to Mr. Will Hay.

Tunbridge Wells Air Pageant: The Mayor, Alderman C. Westbrook (left) and Sir Robert Gower, M.P., standing by a Moth
TUNBRIDGE WELLS AIR PAGEANT: The fleet of five Moths lined up in the field and receiving a very close (too close, sometimes) inspection from the small crowd.
SO SIMPLE: This group clearly illustrates the natural adaptability of the light aeroplane for casual landings away from any aerodromes. Senor Don Juan de la Cierva flew this Moth from Hamble and landed on the sands outside the house, at the Isle of Wight, of Mr.Wallace Barr, who has kindly sent us these pictures. The machine was easily wheeled up to the house, and simply parked amongst the cars and boats.
EXPERIMENTAL LIGHT 'PLANE CLUB AT NOTTINGHAM: The work of this interesting club, full particulars of which were given in "Flight" for February 17 this year, is proceeding on very ambitious lines No 1 picture shows the partly-constructed tailless machine in the foreground, which is being erected entirely to the members' designs. Incidentally, these have been approved by an experienced designer wth the exception of a few minor details. On the right of No. 1, against the wall, is somebody's Westland "Widgeon"and on the left is the Club's own-built Linnet, in which they have been experimenting with an A.B.C. engine, but not with very good results.
"AND SO TO BED" :- These interesting pictures were kindly sent by Mr. "Harold Brooklyn," a private owner, who flies a Westland "Widgeon." In this he made an air tour this summer in England, carrying, as will be seen, a portable tent and equipment, as well as, apparently, an inflated rubber raft or boat.
THE BOULTON & PAUL "SIDESTRAND": Designed for day bombing and similar duties, this all-metal machine is fitted with two Bristol "Jupiter" engines. The clean lines of the fuselage and engine nacelles should be noted. The gun position in the floor of the fuselage allows of firing under the tail.
AT THE COPENHAGEN AERO SHOW: Three-quarter front view of the Junkers R.42 with three Junkers L.5 engines. This machine has been built by the Swedish Company A.B. Flygindustri, of Limhamn. Note the profusion of machine guns, and the gunners' turret under the machine.
AT THE COPENHAGEN AERO SHOW: Three-quarter {rear view of the Flygindustri Junkers R.42. The machine guns fitted are Danish Madsens. The machine is converted into a commercial aeroplane by changing the centre portion ot the fuselage.
THE FOCKE-WULF "ENTE": Three-quarter front view. Note the negative angle of incidence when the front wheel is on the ground.
THE FOCKE-WULF "ENTE": Three-quarter rear view. To get the side areas correct, a very large fin is necessary.
The Focke-Wulf "Ente": View of the port engine and undercarriage. Note also the petrol tanks in the leading edge.
THE FOCKE-WULF "ENTE": Two views of the front wing. Note that the elevator is so hinged as to give a slot action.
THE ZURICH MEETING: Three-quarter front view of the "Jupiter"-engined Junkers which won the Circuit of the Alps for commercial aeroplanes.
WHERE IS THAT BATTLESHIP? The Hawker "Horsley" torpedo-carrier, with Rolls-Royce "Condor" engine, is the latest form which this surprising machine has taken. Normally, it is the standard bomber of the R.A.F., but has also been produced as a long-distance aeroplane.
SHOWING ITS STING: The Hawker "Horsley" with Rolls-Royce "Condor" engine, in spite of its size, is handled like a scout by Flight-Lieut. Bulman. The full-size torpedo looks almost small on this large machine.
THE SCHNEIDER TROPHY RACE: View of the machines during the 6-hours' mooring test.
THE ITALIAN SCHNEIDER MACHINES: (1) Bernardi's No.2 Macchi being towed into position and (2) Well away; (3) No. 5 Macchi (Guazzetti's mount) being towed; (4) No. 7 Macchi (Ferrarini's) starts; (5) Making an "Immelmann" turn; and (6) Taxying
Captain Feder Guazzetti going all out on No.5 Macchi. He completed six out of the seven laps.
THE 1927 SCHNEIDER CONTEST
Major Mario de Bernardi, last year's winner, who only completed one lap, flew higher on No. 5 Macchi than any of the other competitors.
AVANTI SAVOIA! An impression of Italy's Schneider Trophy defender, the Machine M-52 monoplane, which in general appearance is similar to the M-39, last year's winner.

Dobson, Avro works manager; Mr. J. S. Cartwright, South African manager of the "Shell" Company; Capt. "Jerry" Shaw, Mr. Hill, and Mr. Sharp, all of the "Shell" Company.
The "Avian" in Latvia: After his recent nonstop flight to Riga, Mr. Bert Hinkler took the opportunity to demonstrate his Avro "Avian." He is here seen at Riga with a group of Latvian air officers, including Lieut.-Col. Skourbe, Commander of the Latvian Air Force, Gen. Roushkevitch, and Lieut.-Col. Indan, Chief of the Military Aviation School.
The Zurich Meeting: The Avro "Avian" during the light aeroplane race, directly after winning the Basle Cup for greatest speed between St. Gallen and Basle. On the extreme right is Capt. Gsell, who did the course after the last competitor. Next to him is Major Koepke, the Commandant of the aerodrome.
For Scotland: Mrs. Eliott-Lynn left Woodford Aerodrome on September 2, in her "Avian," to lecture in Scotland for a fortnight on behalf of the Air League of the British Empire. She was accompanied by her secretary (seen on the right of the "Avian" and Mr. Hollindrake (on the left), the latter flying his own "Avian." Amongst the places that will be visited are Dundee, Perth, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Ayr and Edinburgh.
The "Avian" in Latvia: Mr. Hinkler's machine is the object of a close inspection by the flying personnel. The folding undercarriage was much admired. Note how low the nose comes when the wings are folded and the tail raised, thus facilitating inspection of the engine.
HOOTON AIR PAGEANT: (4) Mrs. Eliott-Lynn on Avian "QL" (left), Mr. Fielding on Bluebird "SV" (middle), and Mr. Lacayo on Moth "MF" (right) coming in at the end of the first lap in Inter-Club Members' Race.

Hooton Air Pageant: Squadron-Leader J. Noakes giving an exhibition of his famous crazy flying on an Avro Avian. He also put an Avro Gosport through his crazy tricks. These events were very popular.
186-5 m.p.h.! With an engine of about 130 h.p., this was the speed over 100 km. attained by Captain Hubert Broad last week on the de Havilland "Tiger Moth." Our photograph shows Broad taking off.
THE DE HAVILLAND "TIGER MOTH": Three-quarter rear view.
The De Havilland "Tiger Moth": View of the Undercarriage. Note the absence of an axle, and the housing of the shock absorbers inside the wheels.

HOOTON AIR PAGEANT: (4) Mrs. Eliott-Lynn on Avian "QL" (left), Mr. Fielding on Bluebird "SV" (middle), and Mr. Lacayo on Moth "MF" (right) coming in at the end of the first lap in Inter-Club Members' Race.
Hooton Air Pageant: Three Gloucester ''Gamecocks" of No.23 (Fighter) Squadron flying past the enclosures in very close formation. They gave a thrilling show of air fighting and aerobatics.
Hooton Air Pageant: This Vickers "Virginia" was very useful to many spectators for sheltering from the incessant rain that tried its hardest to wash out the Pageant, but failed.
TABLE-TOP AERONAUTICS: This is a photograph of Toydon Aerodrome, showing in the foreground an Avro 504K and behind a Bristol "Bloodhound." It is the work of Mr. R. S. Allon of South Woodford, the machines being constructed - with the help of "Flight" scale drawings - to a scale of 1/4 in. to the foot out of cardboard. Unfortunately we cannot recognise the pilot standing outside the "Trust House." Our readers will, we think, agree that it is all quite realistic.

AN AERIAL RESTAURANT: An interior view of the cabin of one of the Air Union machines (two Bristol "Jupiters") fitted up as a dining car. It is in daily service (Sundays excepted) on the London-Paris route, and on the Paris-London trip a four course hot luncheon is served, tea being served on the London-Paris flight. Seating (or "eating") accommodation is provided for 12 passengers, and the kitchen is located in the nose. The catering arrangements are carried out by the Cie Internationale des Wagons-Lits, whose steward is on board to attend to passengers.
PRIVATE FLYING IN 1920: This Austin Whippet and B.E.2e, taken at Hendon in 1920, comprised the fleet owned by Mr. A. J. Greenshields, who is now in the Argentina, where he still flies the Austin Whippet as well as a Potez VIII two-seater fitted with a 70 h.p. Anzani engine. He is the only British private owner in that country
The Zurich Meeting: An aerial view of the little Klemm-Daimler monoplane, the lowest-powered machine at the meeting (20 h.p.).
THE FORD RELIABILITY TOUR: The Mercury Jr. biplane (Wright C-6 engine), piloted by H. G. Mummert, was placed third.
EXPERIMENTAL LIGHT 'PLANE CLUB AT NOTTINGHAM: The work of this interesting club, full particulars of which were given in "Flight" for February 17 this year, is proceeding on very ambitious lines No 1 picture shows the partly-constructed tailless machine in the foreground, which is being erected entirely to the members' designs. Incidentally, these have been approved by an experienced designer wth the exception of a few minor details. On the right of No. 1, against the wall, is somebody's Westland "Widgeon"and on the left and also in the foreground of No. 3, is the Club's own-built Linnet, in which they have been experimenting with an A.B.C. engine, but not with very good results. They are anxious to get hold of another engine. In No. 2, is their taxying and general knockabout machine, the "Pink Emu." Financial and housing troubles have hampered the Club lately, but in face of this they obviously progress. The leading spirits are Mr. R.F.T.Granger and his brother. Our previous notice of their work brought them considerable technical assistance.
The Zurich Meeting: The glider shown in this photograph was repeatedly towed behind a Fieseler aeroplane and released, landing in front of the judges' stand. In background may be seen the Avro "Avian."
At the Berlin Meeting: Two German pilots with their glider, which was towed behind an aeroplane. They are Herren Raab and Katzenstein, and form the company which is now building de Havilland "Moths" in Germany under licence.
The Zurich Meeting: M. Comte with his Comte machine made the fastest time in the international speed trials, but was disqualified for not passing between the posts on the finishing line.

THE ROHRBACH "ROFIX": Two views of the new metal single-seater fighter constructed at the Rohrbach works at Copenhagen for the Turkish Government. It was on this machine that the famous German pilot Baeumer was killed under rather unusual circumstances. He was concluding a successful test flight on July 15 with a spin from 3,000 m., but for some unexplained reason he failed to regain normal position, and plunged into Copenhagen Sound, and was drowned.
