A rare view of the Wee Mite in the air. On September 15, 1933, C. W. Noel made a 50min flight around Guernsey.
A poor but rare photograph of the Wee Mite in its revised form, with 40 h.p. Salmson, lengthened fuselage and sweepback on the wings.
Another view of the aircraft shortly before completion.
The Wee Mite complete but with wings uncovered. Standing, from left to right, are Harry Kaines, Harold le Parmentier, Cecil Noel and Eddie Edmonds.
