ASL Valkyrie
Страна: Великобритания
Год: 1910


"Вэлкири". На самолете этого типа Хокер впервые поднялся в воздух.
A machine of somewhat unorthodox design was the "Valkyrie" tail-first monoplane - the 1911 racing model being shown here - designed by H. Barber and built at Hendon. The machine illustrated had a Gnome engine, but other models had Green engines. It will be noticed that there was no horizontal tail surface at the rear, only two vertical rudders. In front, however, there was a fixed horizontal plane, as well as an elevator.
