Seidelinger Delaplane
Designed and built by Robie Seidelinger for the Wilmington Aero Club, and flown by Eddie Bloomfield.
According to “Delaware Aviation History” by Frebert, taxi tests in the configuration shown resulted in moving the engine to a position after the wings rather than under the pilot’s seat, and use of a single propeller, as well as shortening the rear fuselage. In this later form it flew 300 yards on October 21, 1910, and made several other fights on the following days. It was destroyed when lightning struck its storage shed.
While built by Seidelinger, it was funded by the Wilmington Aero Club.
