Willoughby Pelican
 
The 1911 Pelican was a single place "modernized" Wright-type hydroaeroplane by Capt Hugh L. Willoughby with a 50hp tractor engine; span: 30'0". Patented double tails, brass-sheathed twin pontoons, a side-mounted wheel for pitch control, a control column that worked the rudders for yaw, shoulder-operated ailerons, and a spring-mounted pedal accelerator as in an automobile but working in reverse—depress to close the throttle, and foot off for full speed.
