EMETT’S FLYING MACHINE – British Pathe

Roland Emett was a cartoonist, designing amazing machines, but better than Heath Robinson, he actually built them.  Several are still in use today around the world, including 8 in Ontario Canada.

Here is an archive clip of a flying machine he built.  I once spent a year rebuilding an airplane that had crashed.  I then crashed it again on the test flight, which it failed.   I feel Emett and I may have something in common when it comes to building airplanes.
