A FAIRCHILD IN CANADA: A side view of the Fairchild F.C.2 cabin monoplane equipped with an Armstrong Siddeley,"Lynx" geared engine. This machine, which carries a pilot and four passengers, can be fitted with floats, as shown, skis or wheels.
A SINGLE-WHEEL AMPHIBIAN: The Loening XO-10 is a two-seater experimental observation plane, fitted with Wright "Typhoon" engine. A three-lens camera is installed in the bottom, the opening being covered with a watertight cover when the machine is used on the sea. The inverted vee-type air-cooled engine is an interesting experiment.

The latest version of the Vickers Victoria is fitted with two Napier "Lion XI" engines and Handley Page automatic slots. The wheels under the tail skid are temporary, and not permanent fitments.
The tail wheel on the "Moth Six" is steerable, but a certain degree of play is allowed so as to avoid transmitting shocks to the rudder.
