The Zeppelin Staaken Monoplane in Flight: This machine, which is built of metal throughout, was described in a recent issue of FLIGHT. It carries 18 passengers in a comfortable cabin. Our photograph gives an excellent idea of the arrangement of the engines. The yawing moment set up by the cutting out of one of the outer engines must be very great, and this feature would appear to be a very bad one in an otherwise good design.
THE DE H.14 DAY-BOMBER: Some constructional details: (1) The tail skid and auxiliary skid protecting the tube of the tail plane trimming gear. (2) The eye bolt mounting of the front spar of the trimming tail plane. (3) An aileron hinge. (4) The joint between rear undercarriage strut, lower longeron, and lower rear spar. (5) Part-sectioned view of (4). The longerons are cut through and abut on an aluminium block. They are held in place by bolts through the steel plates
