Fairchild 1910 monoplane
 
 FaircWL-1910-01
 
A monoplane built by Walter L. Fairchild with twin tractor propellers chain-driven by a six-cylinder 100-125 hp, two-cycle Emerson engine set on platform on undercarriage. The fuselage was built of steel tubing, lightness and strength achieved by careful use of different sizes and thicknesses of tubes, the strength of each part and portion calculated in detail. All the tubes of the frame where especial strength was thought advisable were stuffed with elm, giving them great strength. It was flown frequently, but crashed in February 1911.
