Another long delivery flight PORTSMOUTH - HONG KONG emphasizes the reliability of the ENVOY. In fourteen days - during several of which no flying was possible owing to waterlogged aerodromes and bad weather - a Series III Cheetah IX Envoy has completed a delivery flight to Hong Kong. It was fully loaded to 6400 lb. and had a range of 1000 miles. This again proves the unfailing reliability of the Cheetah IX Envoy III.
Simplicity of Construction No. 1 THE BRITISH BURNELLI FUSELAGE IS A STRAIGHTFORWARD STRUCTURE AND COMPRISES:- Two flat side panels - large sheets forming upper and lower surfaces - four simple rectangular bulkheads. These four bulkheads, in addition to forming the fuselage structure, are employed as supporting structure for engines, wings, and landing gear. Such a combination into one simple structure of several functions is exclusive to the Burnelli and accounts for the speed of construction and consequent low production costs.
