Fity Folding-wing Monoplane


A 1911 American machine, this monoplane had folding wings, with the idea to drive the machine as a car on the ground using its elaborate 4-wheel undercarriage. It is told that the machine flew on three times for about 15-20 minutes each flight, the final flight at 50 foot height. The third time was disaster, the machine stalled, breaking ribs of the pilot (Charles Fity) and wrecking the propeller (and probably more ...). When he came back the next day, he saw that his father had wrecked the complete machine. This was the end of the Fity aviation saga.
