FEW of the early British-built aircraft recall as much interest - and glory - as the Roe triplane shown in the photograph. "A V.'s" early efforts at - but not his interest in aeronautics date back to 1908-9, when he built a biplane at Brooklands. Later he built a triplane, with a 9 h.p. J.A.P. engine, which he flew at Lea Marshes. The machine shown here is the one, fitted with a 20 h.p. engine, on which he made a number of successful flights at Wembley in December, 1909, and the following year.
