The Wight Aircraft
« on: July 20, 2021, 05:15:10 AM »
This is a very good book that covers the period from 1913 to 1919. Written by Michael H. Goodall. Contains twelve scale three view drawings with specifications as well as some technical drawings. There is also a drawing of the large Davis recoilless rifle. Many good photographs in this 190 page book. Long out of print but available through bookfinder.com and sometimes on Ebay.

So I create downscaled originals.

There are three view drawings of the original version and the second version of the quadruplanes. Complete specifications are given for all three types. Photos of all three versions.
