WEYMANN

  The firm of Weymann-Lepere exhibits a rather extraordinary little two-seater monoplane. This machine may, perhaps, be described as a "flying boat on wheels," in that it has a boat-like fuselage placed very low over the ground, the occupants sitting side by side in front, and the engine being mounted above the fuselage. In addition to the main wheels there are two smaller wheels under the nose to prevent the machine nosing over on the ground. The windscreen in front of the cabin is of car type, and the whole cabin arrangement looks more like the interior of a car. The engine is of very novel type. It has six air-cooled cylinders in line, and the crankcase is of solid wood, as are also the magnetos!
