A.Ord-Hume - CLW Curlew /British pre-war ultralights/
Photographs were taken at Gravesend in September 1936, and show the very neat lines of the Curlew. Note the long chord Pobjoy cowl and the split trailing-edge flaps, which extend to well under the fuselage although they do not meet. It was intended to offer the Curlew, fully equipped for training, for about ?1,200.
The only known flying shot of the Curlew, although not of brilliant quality, is reproduced here for the record. The tail skid was an anachronism on what was, in its time, a thoroughly modern aeroplane.
