English Perfect Tail-Less Plane (Nov, 1934)
English Perfect Tail-Less Plane
DESIGNED primarily for aerial combat, a new British fighting plane overcomes a dangerous blind spot by eliminating the fuselage and tail unit behind the wings. This construction provides the rear gunner with a fine field of fire. The upper wing is of the tapered, swept-back type. The ship is controlled by balanced flaps on the upper wing. Worked together, they serve as elevators; operated differentially, as ailerons.
