Dunne D.VI




Unfortunately, by that time the War Office decided that it had spent far too much on experiments with aeroplanes - a total of about £2.500, at a time when Germany was devoting £400.000 a year to military flying, and Dunne lost his official support.

He carried on by himself, and in the next few years proved conclusively the soundness of his ideas. After taking off in his D.6 powered biplane, he locked the controls and let it fly itself while he wrote a report.


The 1911 Dunne D 6 was designed by John W. Dunne and built by Short Bros.
