About This File

FS98 Avro Roe-IV Triplane 1911. The last and without a doubt the most famous of the initial Avro Triplane series built by Alliot Verdon Roe, the founder of Avro. A fully flying replica of this charismatic triplane was built for the 1965 film "Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines". As the predeceding Roe-III, this model fitted the more powerful 4-cylinder water cooled 35 hp Green engine, but had a conventional, non-carrying tailplane, and a smaller rudder. Also, despite previous success with ailerons, this design reverted to wing-warping for lateral control. The wingspan was slightly increased to 32 ft, and the length to 30 ft, and it was the basis for the successful Avro biplane designs that followed. Only 1 unit was built, as Avro was already developing the Avro-D biplane. By Stephan Scholz.
