Hensley 1909 biplane
 
 Hensley-1909
 
This somewhat Wright-like machine was constructed in Anderson, Indiana, USA, by Charles H. Hensley, a 40-year-old man who enjoyed building and flying box kites, and Levi Calvin Lambert, who was a 33-year-old plant manager and a member of the family that owned the Lambert Gas and Gasoline Engine Co., also of Anderson, which probably provided the engine. A grandson of Hensley stated that the plane flew around in a circle, for how long or at what height is unknown. He was told the plane was dismantled after its only flight.
