DE HAVILLANDS IN AUSTRALIA: Our photographs were taken on the occasion of a flight from Winton to Longreach and back, when the Federal Prime Minister, Mr. Bruce, Mrs. Bruce and a party were the passengers. Above are seen the two machines at Longreach aerodrome. On the left the Prime Minister and Mrs. Bruce are seen conversing with Mr. Fysh, while on the right the D.H.50 is seen taking off from Winton. Note the flat and apparently unlimited aerodrome.
Front view of the Avia B.H.17, fitted with 300 h.p. Hispano-Suiza engine.
The Avia B.H.17 undergoing sand-loading tests. A factor of safety of 12-5 was reached, and then the wings did not break until the load had been sustained for three minutes.
Side view of the Blackburn school seaplane. Note the back-swept wings.
The Fairey oleo-pneumatic undercarriage as fitted on the "Fawn," "Flycatcher," etc. The travel of the wheels is exceptionally long, and the machines can be pancaked from a considerable height without damage.
THE BUILT-UP STEEL-PLATE ENGINE MOUNTING OF THE FAIREY "FLYCATCHER": The engine plate is in four sections, the details of the construction and method of joining being shown in the sketches.
SOME INTERESTING DETAILS ON THE FAIREY "FLYCATCHER": 1, the pilot's cockpit is provided with sliding panels working in grooves and locked in any position by the spring catches shown in 2. In 3 are shown the rudder pedals, which are adjustable to suit pilots of different height. 4 shows the tail-skid assembly of the " Flycatcher." Rubber discs, working in compression provide the springing. Details are given in 5, 6, and 7.
