R.Riding - Hinkler's Ibis
No data or dimensions survive of the Ibis, though some idea of its size can be gauged from this photograph. Bert Hinkler, right, was 5ft 4in!
Two views of the Ibis taken at Hamble. Note the saddle-type fuel tanks between the engines, the high positioning of the horizontal tail surfaces and the strutless wings.
THE "IBIS" IN FLIGHT: That the view is good is shown by the fact that in this picture the upper half of "Bert's" head is visible.
