NEW and EXPERIMENTAL TYPES at HENDON
Handley Page H.P.51: Like the Bristol machine, the Handley Page H.P.51 is a high-wing monoplane. As a troop carrier it has accommodation for thirty men, while as an ambulance it will take ten stretchers.
The machine can also be used for transporting fuel. It then carries three petrol tanks of 173 gallons each. The tapered monoplane wing is fitted with wing-tip slots and slotted trailing-edge flaps. The wing span is 90 ft. and the overall length 78 ft. 4 in. The two engines are Siddeley "Tiger VI," of 760-810 h.p. each.
ANOTHER NOTABLE NEW SERVICE TRANSPORT: Wing-tip slots and slotted flaps are incorporated in this Handley Page bomber transport monoplane, seen here during a test flight with Capt. Cordes at the controls. The engines are two 760/810 h.p. Siddeley Tiger VI, fourteen-cylinder two-row radials.
OUTSTANDING MILITARY TYPE. The H.P. 51 bomber transport (two 760 h.p. Tiger VI) has slotted flaps which give it a wide speed range.
