Here's a biplane with gap-to-chord ratio that won't quit! Lots of effective wing area in 13".
By Maj. Ed HEYN
Claude, one of the pioneers of British aviation, produced his first airplane, the Grahame-White Baby, in 1910. In succeeding years, his organization built many aircraft under license, primarily Morane-Saulnier and Voisin types, and developed several original designs. One of these, the Type 20, seemed to me to be a likely entrant for FAC type WW I combat. Plans and data may be found in Vol. I of "Warplanes of the First World War" series by J.M. Bruce. As no actual dimensions are given to develop a scale, a photographic blow-up of 13 inch wingspan was used.
The Type 20 proved to be easily adjusted and very stable in flight, especially indoors. Construction is quite conventional and should present no problems to those biplane lovers
