Pearse Monoplane
Страна: Новая Зеландия
Год: 1949

Единственный экземпляр
Pearse s only other aeroplane was his ‘‘utility aircraft” constructed at Christchurch during 1933-43. Now displayed at the Museum of Transport & Technology (MoTaT) in Auckland, it is seen here after its arrival at Auckland in November 1956, three years after Pearse’s death. Its transport from Christchurch aboard a USAF Douglas Globemaster was the closest it ever got to making a flight.
Constructed in 1908, this unique aircraft utilised several unusual features including a tilting engine and a shrouded propeller.
