Drewet 1909 glider
 
 Drewet-1910
 
Oliver H. Drewet (or Drewett, but definitely not Drewer) returned to Asansol, India to work as an engineer. It was there that he built his glider, based on a model that he had built before moving to India. A test flight, claimed to be the first in India, was made on 1 March 1909, down an inclined railway, on top of a truck. After 100 yards the machine left the truck with Drewet on board, and flew a distance of 20 yards before crashing.
