Handley Page 1909 Glider

hpcan09


The first HP design was a canard glider, at the Barking Creek works in 1909.


HP had a stand at the Olympia Aero & Motor Boat Show in 1909, featuring the Weiss gliders and his own canard glider, of better construction but having the Weiss patent wing. He attempted to fly this from marshlands near Barking Creek, Dagenham, but without success.
