Fortney 1911 Monoplane
 
Fortney3-01
 
This large monoplane, Louis Fortney’s third, was powered with a 4-cylinder Knox engine of 60 hp weighing 400 lbs. Viewed from a distance the machine had a very fine appearance, but under closer inspection revealed a number of weak points in construction. After two short jumps Fortney met with the usual fate of the novices – yet deserves credit for staying in the game – as this was also his third machine to be destroyed.
