Ono of tho attractions at the show trill bo the new Lo Rhone candron biplano of that daring young aviator J. W. H. Scotland, who, it will bo remembered, made a splendid flight at Tahuna Park early this year. Tho machine with which Mr Scotland achieved such ft signal success on that occasion, however, brought ’ him to grief some weeks later in the North Island, fortunately not with permanent injury to its owner, although the machine itself was wrecked. Scotland immediately ordered a new machine, and it arrived in time to be exhibited at the Christchurch Show two weeks ago, where thousands of people inspected it; and last week the officials at Oamarit Show voluntarily awarded it a first award as being tho most scientific exhibit on tho ground. The engine of the new Le Rhone caudron biplano is claimed to be the only ono of its kind in Australasia. It is a passenger machine, and is almost twice as powerful as Scotland’s previous biplane, the horse-power being 70 as against 40. There are seven cylinders, each being turned out of nickel chrome steel. The total evolutions are 1,400 per minute. The machine will be exhibited by Mr Scotland’s representatives to-morrow and Thursday. Mr Scotland is detained in a Christchurch hospital with throat trouble.
