Wight Baby
Страна: Великобритания
Год: 1916

Wight Baby seaplane 9098 at the Isle of Grain. The classical extended Wight fin is shown to advantage.
MAJOR AND MINOR. Photographed on the maker's slipway (J. Samuel White & Co. Ltd. of Cowes. l.o.W.) in 1916 are two lesser-known naval prototypes: (left) the Air Dept. of the Admiralty A.D.1000 five-seat torpedo-bomber (serial 1358) and the White Baby single-seat scout (serial 9097). Three of the latter were built, but, like the 115-ft.-span A.D.1000, the 30-ft. 8-in.-span Baby was not operationally successful. The twin-boom A.D.1000 had two tractor (and one pusher) 3 10-h.p. Sunbeams, while the Baby had a 100-h.p. Gnome Monosoupape rotary.
