INTELLIGENT ANTICIPATION? Bearing an odd resemblance, at least as far as the hull design is concerned, to the new Empire flying boats, this "flying machine of the future" was visualised in 1907 by Mr. George L. O. Davidson, of Colorado and Scotland, who (according to the original prospectus, sent by a reader) floated a company for aircraft manufacture in that year. His forecast was "weight, 100 tons; speed, Chicago to New York in 3 hours; capacity, 100 passengers at, say, 10 dollars each per journey."
