Flight 1932-11
Flight
THE HAWKER "HART": The machine to be exhibited in Paris is one which has been in service for a long period with an R.A.F. Squadron.
THE HAWKER STAND: On the right the "Hart" ("Kestrel") of No. 57 Squadron, which has done 740 hours' flying. In the foreground the stainless steel fuselage for the "Osprey," which is one of the greatest attractions of the Show.
THE BRISTOL "BULLDOG," 1933 MODEL: This is the aircraft which will be exhibited on the Bristol stand in Paris.
THE 1933 "BULLDOG": Behind it on the Bristol stand is a skeleton wing in stainless steel.
A NEW BOEING PURSUIT PLANE: Marking a radical departure in the construction of pursuit type aeroplanes, the Boeing Airplane Company of Seattle has built and delivered to the U.S. Army Air Corps three experimental low-wing, all-metal, "Wasp"-powered fighters, designated by the Army as Model XP 936.
Armstrong-Whitworth (Type A.W.XVI)
A NEW NIGHT BOMBER: The Boulton &. Paul "P.32" is fitted with three Bristol Pegasus engines.
FAIREY "FIREFLIES" IN BELGIUM: A line-up of the machines at Nivelles.
THE FAIREY MACHINES: In this view the wings of the "Fox" rather hide the "Firefly," but actually on the stand both machines are readily viewed, which, needless to say, means admired.
THE HAWKER "FURY": A single-seater interceptor fighter with Rolls-Royce Kestrel engine.
Бельгийские R.31 уцелели после первых налетов Люфтваффе на их аэродромы, состоявшихся 10 мая 1940 года. Они совершили 41 разведывательный вылет для поддержки войск, последний вылет бельгийских ВВС в войне состоялся 27 мая.
A BELGIAN TWO-SEATER RECONNAISSANCE MONOPLANE: The Renard R.31 is fitted with a Rolls-Royce "Kestrel" engine and is credited with a speed of 335 km./h. (208 m.p.h.) at 13,000 ft.
LANDING EXTRAORDINARY: The latest type of experimental Autogiro has no fixed wing, no ailerons, and no elevator. Control is by tilting the rotor direct. The machine can be landed with its tail wheel touching first, the rest of the aircraft then sinking quite slowly to earth. When this picture was taken Mr. de la Cierva was landing the machine in this fashion.
FAIREY "FOXES" IN BELGIUM Machines lined up at Evere.
THE FAIREY MACHINES: In this view the wings of the "Fox" rather hide the "Firefly," but actually on the stand both machines are readily viewed, which, needless to say, means admired.
THE POTEZ 49: The lower wing is detachable, so that the machine can be turned into a monoplane.
THE FAIREY "GORDON": A two-seater day bomber with Armstrong-Siddeley Panther engine.
The "Gordon" as a Seaplane.
Saro "Cloud"
THE C.A.M.S. (S.G.A.) 55 The hull is of all-metal construction, with Duralumin planking
THE THIRTEENTH INTERNATIONAL AERO SHOW AT PARIS: In the foreground of this general view are the Morane-Saulnier machines. The large monoplane behind them is the Latecoere Lat. 290.
THE POTEZ 45: This is a "catapultable" flying boat for coastal patrol. Note the unusual placing of the engine.
Avro "Tutor"
THE AVRO 626: A training type used for flying training and military training (gunnery, bombing, photography, radio, etc.).
LORD LONDONDERRY: Secretary of State for Air arriving in an Avro "Trainer."
WITH "BOOTS" ON: The A.S.T. seaplane fleet flying over our photographer at Hamble. Left to right, the " Avian," "Tutor," "504."
THE PERCIVAL "GULL": A private owner's three-seater with Cirrus-Hermes IV engine.
THIRD IN KING'S CUP RACE AND WINNER OF SIDDELEY TROPHY: Mr. W. L. Runciman did remarkably well, and won the praise of everybody by his splendid course-keeping. He is seen coming in at the end of the race.
WELL EQUIPPED: Mrs. J. A. Mollison (Amy Johnson) ready to leave for the Cape.
THE HAWKER STAND: On the right the "Hart" ("Kestrel") of No. 57 Squadron, which has done 740 hours' flying. In the foreground the stainless steel fuselage for the "Osprey," which is one of the greatest attractions of the Show.
ROUND THE WORLD IN A FLYING BOAT: Von Gronau and his crew in the Dornier Wal which has just completed a world flight.
THE A.N.F. MUREAUX 170 C.1: This is a single-seater fighter with "gull" shaped wings.
Blackburn "Iris V"
A MILITARY REPRESENTATIVE AT HANWORTH: An Armstrong Whitworth "Atlas" Mark II (Panther engine). This machine has wings of CYH section, and seems to hang in the air remarkably well at low speed. Note the anti-drag engine cowling.
ARRIVAL OF VICE CHANCELLOR: Rev. F. J. Lys, M.A., being assisted out of his machine by his pilot, Wing. Com. Park, and the A.O.C. in C.
AT THE SLIPWAY: A.S.T. have their own slipway at Hamble so that getting their seaplanes afloat does not present much difficulty.
WITH "BOOTS" ON: The A.S.T. seaplane fleet flying over our photographer at Hamble. Left to right, the " Avian," "Tutor," "504."
BLERIOT MACHINE: The 111 commercial machine with retractable undercarriage.
THE THIRTEENTH INTERNATIONAL AERO SHOW AT PARIS: In the foreground of this general view are the Morane-Saulnier machines. The large monoplane behind them is the Latecoere Lat. 290.
SIR GEOFFREY SALMOND: Beside the Fairey III.F in which he flew from Northolt.
CONDUITE INTERIEURE: The Farman F.355 is a two-seater light plane with "Renault" engine.
GENERAL AIRCRAFT CO.'S ST4: A similar machine (two Pobjoy engines) will be exhibited at the Paris Aero Show.
ANOTHER GREENLAND AIR SURVEY: One of the Danish Heinkel seaplanes.
THE LATEST TREND: Mr. Lowe-Wylde - as usual pioneering - with his latest venture. He has, for experimental purposes only, added a motor-cycle engine to his B.A.C. VII two-seater and has already done a considerable amount of successful flying with this combination.
LIORE & OLIVIER: The large Leo 30 four-engined bomber, the 4-wheeI undercarriage.
AN ITALIAN COMMERCIAL SEAPLANE: The Savoia-Marchetti S.66 twin-hull mono flying-boat. This machine, which was described in our issue for October 13 last, is a development of the S.55 type (which made the formation Atlantic flight in 1930-31) but is fitted with three 500-h.p. Fiat A.22R engines.
FROM THE GALLERY: The Grand Palais as it appears when viewed from the Northern end. In the foreground the Italian stand.
Spartan "Cruiser"
AT BELGRADE: Mr. Jojkitch; Mr. Ballardie; Mr. Mapplebeck; Capt. Markitchevitch, President of the Military Commission; Col. Strange, and three other members of the Commission. The party on the right includes, facing the camera, Lt. Col. Tomic, Commandant of the Belgrade Aerodrome, who is understood to be the senior pilot to have flown on active service in any Air Force in the world. (Balkan War, 1912, in a Bleriot.)
Avro "Lynxes" of The University Air Squadron. The University Crest can be clearly seen.
FOR SEAMANSHIP: The good old Avro 504 is sufficiently difficult to handle on the water to teach pupils all there is to know about that side of the training; it is not used for flying training.
WITH "BOOTS" ON: The A.S.T. seaplane fleet flying over our photographer at Hamble. Left to right, the " Avian," "Tutor," "504."
AROUND AUSTRALIA BY AIR: Mrs. H. B. Bonney, who flew round Australia last September, in flight over Essendon, Victoria.
The "MOTH" IN BRAZIL: Inspecting the "Moth" Training Squadron of 15 machines, of the Brazilian Navy, at the Ihla de Governador, in the Bay of Rio de Janeiro. In front, from left to right, are :- Admiral Bento Machado, Capt. Raul Bandeira, Admiral Protogenes Guimares (Minister of Marine), Capt. Adalberto Nunes (Commanding Naval Aviation), Capt. Netto dos Reis, Lt. Araujo (Chief Instructor).
A BRITISH SAILPLANE: The "Scud II" flying at the London Gliding Club's ground, Dunstable.
In the three-quarter front view the clean lines of the "Altis" are very clearly shown
ON SAILPLANE PRINCIPLES: An interesting little single-seater which has been built in the Transvaal, S.A. With the A.B.C. "Scorpion" it cruises at 60 m.p.h. comfortably, and has a landing speed of about 30 m.p.h.
This three-quarter rear view of the "Altis" brings out the wisdom of the adage that "when an aircraft looks right, it generally is right." The tail units in particular appear very sensibly planned.
The "Altis" is shown in flight
The peculiarly "birdlike" form of the fuselage is brought out.
The method of obtaining the flexible trailing edge. The top and bottom rib caps are both free to slide.
The drawing shows the method of bracing the single wing spar. The tube at the end carries the rotating tip.

TAILLESS: The Nieuport-Delage 941 light plane has a 3-wheel undercarriage, the single front wheel being steerable.
AIR-COOLED PASSENGERS: The Nieuport-Delage 590 "Colonial" monoplane has an open "balcony" which gives the machine gunners a free field and at the same time protects them from the slipstream.
