Abstract

THE plycovered cantilever monoplane wing as we know it in England today is a development of the Fokker construction used abroad for many years. In this one unitthe wingwood has held its own during the period when metal was becoming predominant. In fact, the plywood wing of this type only dates back some three or four years in England and has become popular concurrently with metal. Three firmsA. V. Roe & Co., Ltd., SaundersRoe., Ltd., and the Desoutter Aircraft Co., Ltd.have used it extensively on a wide range of civil aircraft varying from 12,000 lb. down to 1,650 lb. in gross weight including monoplane flying boats.
