The Swedish Exhibit

<...>
  A small school machine, a single-seater with 90 h.p. Thulin-Rhone engine, was also exhibited. This machine is of orthodox design, and is only remarkable for the fact that ailerons, which run the whole length of the wings, are fitted to the bottom plane only. The machine is known as the "Tummeliten," and is said to be very easy to fly, and to be capable of all the modern stunts, such as looping, spinning, rolling, etc. The single-bay bracing is in the form of stranded cables. The characteristics of "Tummeliten" are as follows: Weight empty, 380 kg. (837 lbs.); weight loaded, 515 kg. (1,130 lbs.); speed at 1,000 m., 160 km. (100 m.p.h.); at 3,000 m., 155 km. (96 m.p.h.); ceiling, 5,000 m. (16,400 ft.).
