(Fig. 6); and although its stability was not perfect, it was an interesting machine—a forecast of the monoplane of the future.
This was prior to 1909; Bleriot had not yet flown the Channel in his monoplane.
As Eradicate came out to help put away the monoplane Tom noticed that the colored man was holding one hand as though it hurt him.
The destruction of this monoplane was, to me, a great disappointment.
At the extreme end was the vertical rudder, which sent the monoplane to left or right.
He shut off his motor and turned the monoplane's nose directly at the earth.
His motor was throttled; there was only the whistle of torn air on the monoplane's wings.
And he added that if he got the signal he would keep on heading for the monoplane.
"That's a monoplane," declared Tom, who was getting to be quite an expert.
In general it followed the stream lines of the modern French monoplane.
