THE SEDDON AEROPLANE. - A most unusual type of aeroplane has made its appearance at Wolverhampton, and is illustrated above. It consists of a tandem biplane, and has been designed by Lieut. J. W. Seddon and Mr. A G. Hackett. Apart from the tandem biplane principle, which has not yet been given any real practical trial, the Seddon machine is also unique in its system of construction, the bracing of the main planes being effected by an arrangement of crossed hoops instead of by the usual system of struts and ties. The constructive work has been carried out by Messrs. Accles and Pollock, at Oldbury, the two engines, which drive Beedle propellers, being supplied by the New Engine Co. The estimated weight of the machine is about one ton, and its supporting surface about 1,000 sq. ft. Beyond the Seddon machine a monoplane is seen.
