The world's smallest aeroplane of its day, the Wee Bee (background) was flown by a pilot lying prone on the fuselage. It was designed and built by a group of Convair employees who later formed Bee Aviation Associates Inc and built the more conventional single-seat Honey Bee and, in the foreground, the Vee-tailed Queen Bee. Just visible on the right in this picture is the Urshan Air Chair, a rotorcraft built from surplus parts by Sam Urshan and flown on a tow-line or tethered in a wind.
EXCLUSIVE Air Pictorial drawing of the Bee Aviation Queen Bee which will make its first flight soon. Three aircraft are under construction. Span 32ft. 10 in., length 22 ft. 1 in., height 8 ft. 5 in.
