Mortimer & Vaughan The Safety

Two English enthusiasts named Mortimer and Vaughan built a biplane with two pairs of semicircular wings which gave it the appearance of a double-decker ring doughnut. They called it 'The Safety', but the machine crashed and burned during its first trial at Edgware, Middlesex, in 1910. A second version proved safer, if no more successful, for it never flew at all, though Morton and Vaughan did have it photographed suspended on thin wires to give the impression of flight.
