AVRO Type F cira 1912 enclosed cockpit passenger plane
An interesting plane and a very nice looking model. I like the display base/diorama. I wonder how many passengers it carried? And what about that wheel/skid arrangement? Looks like that would have been a real handful to land.
The writeup said crew of 4 (maybe) with a passenger load of 6 (perhaps). The skid/wheel landing gear was necessary dur to the unimproved fields' habit of springing and splaying the wheels.
AVRO Type F Passenger Plane
Great model, Lepercan!
This was apparently the world´s first airliner. It was an interesting design and the Fiddlersgreen model is appealing.
Here are some more pictures and drawings of the AVRO type F: http://images.google.com/images?hl=...gle Search&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&um=1&sa=N&tab=wi
Laughing this much can't be good for me.
The F was a single seater.
Just how much can you hope to achieve on 35 HP ?

No comment from me, but I feel a surge of deja vue that might be shared by some pre-2004 members.
Oh and the document package from the same page is also worth a look.

Looks to me like Burnelli's lifting body aircraft weren't all that original after all -
check out the airfoil section fuselage of the Avro.
