Rudlicki R-I

Shortly before the outbreak of the Great War, student Jerzy Rudlicki (who later become known aircraft designer), after building several successful gliders 1912-1913 designed an aircraft named R-I. Its construction commenced with support of the Aero Club of Odessa (where Rudlicki resided at that time), which supplied Anzani engine. When the war erupted the plane was nearing completion and was therefore requisitioned by the Russian military which finalized the construction and made several (3 or 4) flights on it (before the plane crashed due to engine failure).
