There has been much talk in club magazines of
late about Austin Aeroplanes powered by Seven engines. As an adjunct, one of our members has found
an old photocopy showing an airplane built by the Gordon England company. It is described as the GE2 No.103 and photo 1
shows it being readied for flight by Sir George White at Larkhill in 1912.
Photo 2 is described as “Side-by-side dual
control arrangements such as this were known as ‘Sociable’”.
However, whilst the article does not specify
which engine was used, it definitely wasn’t an Austin 7.
