Fyodorov Split-wing Machine
 
 Fyodorov-Split
 
Designed and built by Yevgeny Stepanovich Fyodorov (Евгений Степанович Фёдоров) during the period 1895 until 1903. Fyodorov had a career in the military as an engineer, where in 1895 he presented a model aeroplane project with a “split-wing” (самолёта-пятиплана). This model was successfully flown behind an automobile, which towed the model. On the results of the tests with this model Fyodorov decided to build a full scale aeroplane at his own expense. According to sources it was finished, but never flight tested. The machine of Fyodorov is considered the second constructed flying machine after the one of Mozhaiski (Можа́йский).
