Poster Print of Built Like a Bird - Scottish inventors New Flying-Machine

A remarkable flying machine, enbodying the rotary wing theory of flight, is being constructed at Taplow by a Scottish inventor, G L Davidson. It is built on original lines, bearing a resemblance t the form of a bird. The machine has already cost over £5, 000 and a further £5, 000 will be required to complete it. When finished it will weigh over six tons, and it is designed to carry twenty or thirty passengers. The advantages claimed for theis type of machine are that it can travel in any kind of weather: by it's own power it can raise itself vertically from the ground. The rotary wings with their horizontal movement enable it to hover in the air. It can attain a speed of over 150 mph. For the wings there are two gignatic gyroscopes, or rotary fans, 27.5 feet in diameter
