Classic military biplanes - Classic military biplanes, (Book, 1965) [WorldCat.org]



The Bristol Gordon England biplanes were a series of early British military biplane aircraft designed by Gordon England for the Bristol Aeroplane Company that first flew in 1912. Designed for easy ground transport, the aircraft could be quickly disassembled.

The first Gordon England design, the G.E.1 , was a two-bay equal-span tractor configuration biplane powered by a 50 hp (37 kW) Clerget 4-cylinder water cooled engine, driving the two-bladed propeller via a chain drive giving a 2:1 speed reduction. The crew of two were accommodated side-by-side in a single cockpit, fitted with dual controls. The empennage consisted of a small triangular tailplane and elevators mounted on top of the rectangular-section fuselage and an elongated triangular fins above and below the fuselage with the unbalanced rudder mounted on the trailing edge.

After testing during May and June 1912 the fins were removed, and an enlarged aerodynamically balanced rudder fitted, and the aircraft sold to the Deutsche Bristol Werke . However it was found to be unsuitable for use as a trainer, and was returned to the Bristol works at Filton in September 1912 and scrapped. [1]
