Drewet 1909 glider
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.
