Cranks Plane from Cockpit (Apr, 1923)

Cranks Plane from Cockpit

IN FRONT of the pilot’s seat in the first metal airplane to be completed in the United States is a horizontally turning crank that enables the aviator to crank the motor without leaving the cockpit.

The plane has been constructed for the Navy Department and has made successful trial flights at Martin Field, Cleveland, Ohio.
