 Windsor Model Aircraft and Gliding Club No. 1

Windsor-1
 
Sydney Camm, one of Britains most distinguished aircraft designers and father of the Hawker Hurricane, was born in 1893. From his schooldays he had shown a keen interest in aviation, founding the Windsor Model Aeroplane Club and constructing many successful model aircraft. Camm and his friends built a full sized Chanute-type glider 1912-1913 with plans to put an engine on it. It is seen with wing extensions that were added after the first experiments. It was used for almost a year, before being wrecked by a hurricane.
