This photograph shows the step of the Short all-metal hull flying.boat "Singapore."
BRISTOLS IN GERMANY: This photograph shows a school machine, fitted with Bristol "Lucifer" engine built by the ARADO Handels Gesellschaft m.b.H., of Warnemunde. The wing bracing is somewhat unusual.
Side view of the ARADO A.R.S.1 with Bristol "Lucifer" engine.
The Hawker "Danecock": Three-quarter front view. The engine is an Armstrong-Siddeley "Jaguar."
CONTROLLABILITY: These two photographs of the Hawker "Danecock," photographed from another aeroplane, show two stages of a "slow roll" carried out by Flight-Lieut. Bulman, the firm's chief test pilot. In the larger photograph the machine is seen going into a left-hand roll, and the port ailerons can be seen to be in the maximum "up" position. In the inset the machine is on its back and is commencing to dive into a normal position.
AN ANGLO-DANISH ALLIANCE: This series of photographs show the Hawker "Danecock" with Armstrong-Siddeley "Jaguar" engine, of which three were recently delivered to the Danish Government. A further number will be built at the Naval dockyards at Copenhagen. These photographs were secured during a test flight at Brooklands recently, and show the machine in a number of various attitudes. The pilot was Flight-Lieut. Bulman.
The Hawker "Danecock": Side view. Note the Danish flag on the rudder.
An Anglo-Dane Alliance: In this group are seen representatives of the Hawker Engineering Company, Armstrong-Siddeley Motors, and the Danish Government. From left to right: Capt. Proctor (Armstrong-Siddeley), Mr. L. A. Pollard (Hawker), Mr. C. V. Thymann (Royal Danish Navy), Mr. H. K. Jones (Hawker), Lieut. P. W. S. Bulman (Hawker), Lieut.-Commander Victor (Royal Danish Navy), and Mr. F. I. Bennett (Hawker)
THE HAWKER "DANECOCK": This front view gives a good idea of the large span single-bay bracing, and the generally "clean" lines of the machine.
The Hawker "Danecock": Three-quarter rear view.
MANOEUVRABILITY: Two views of the Handley Page "Hyderabad" night bomber. This machine is fitted with two Napier "Lion" engines. In the flights during which these photographs were taken the machine was piloted by Capt. Wilcockson, who seemed to handle the "Hyderabad" as if it were a scout.
THE HANDLEY PAGE "HYDERABAD": These three views show the machine from different angles and give a good idea of the general lay-out, which is based upon that of the commercial W.8 type, although certain minor changes have been made for the use of the machine as a night bomber.
THE WRIGHT-BELLANCA SIX-SEATER: An American commercial aeroplane fitted with a 200 h.p. Wright "Whirlwind" engine. The wing-struts also contribute to the lift.
THE WRIGHT-BELLANCA SIX-SEATER: Side view showing the wing bracing struts, which also form lifting surface, and the "Oxford Bags" landing chassis.
The Albatros L.72: The 55 h.p. Siemens radial engine is mounted on the trailing edge of the top plane, and drives a pusher airscrew. The view from the cockpits should be excellent.
The Albatros L.72: This front view shows that in spite of the interplane struts, the wings are of the cantilever type, without external bracing.
Albatros L.72 Light 'Plane: Side view. Note the pronounced stagger.
Albatros L.72 55 h.p. Siemens Engine
