And for those of us not into 70 years of being a nut ... 40 years + reference library + a job years while at Uni watching hundreds of hours of film and building an index to the archive - getting paid

Seventy plus years of being an aeroplane nut helps! Memory goes back to seeing the Bristol Brabazon fly over Edinburgh. Add to that a bookshelf full of reference books and you have your answer!

You can't see much out of most biplanes.   You only need to see a bit out the sides taking off. I presume it flys at a different attitude to the one it sits at on the ground. Nev

Looked at the pic and thought of all the undesirable characteristics this aircraft might have and then read the wikipedia. Yep nailed it.

Rare but can occur…during a house move, the wife rolled up the aircraft build plans along with the yacht build plans, causing blueprint sheets to get mixed up.

And this one?Nicolai Eberholst (Pike Grey 1914-1918) on Twitter: "The Lohner 10.20A.  Unsurprisingly, this strange looking Austro-Hungarian prototype fighter had  many issues and was not very successful during trials. #WW1 #WWI #FWW  #GreatWar #History #

Early attempts at cabin pressurisation, with cloth covered aircraft, were fraught with risk.

What aircraft had built-in crosswinds?

Not quite sure what you mean by built in crosswinds but I’ll try again anyway! The Ercoupe?

It had vertical fins mounted on the wings to simulate crosswinds.
