  • The ship floats upon water and the balloon upon air; but the ship differs from the balloon, and the ship and the balloon differ from the flying creature and flying machine.
    0

  • The analogies which connect the water with the air, the ship with the balloon, and the ship and the balloon with the flying creature and flying machine are false analogies.
    0

    0
    0
  • These changes in the direction of the long axis of the bird in swimming, diving and flying, and in the direction of the stroke of the wings in sub-aquatic and aerial flight, are due to the fact that the bird is heavier than the air and lighter than the water.
    0
    0
  • The physical properties of water and air explain in a great measure how the sailing ship differs from the balloon, and how the latter differs from the flying creature and flying machine constructed on the natural type.

  • The balloon is a mere lifting machine and is in no sense to be regarded as a flying machine.
    0
    0
  • It resembles the flying creature only in this, that it is immersed in the ocean of air in which it sustains itself.
    0
    0
  • The balloon floats because it is lighter than the air; the flying creature floats because it extracts from the air, by the vigorous downward action of its wings, a certain amount of upward recoil.
    0
    0
  • The balloon is passive; the flying creature is active.
    0
    0
  • The balloon is controlled by the wind; the flying creature controls the wind.
    0
    0
  • The balloon in the absence of wind can only rise and fall in a vertical line; the flying creature can fly in a horizontal plane in any given direction.
    0
    0
  • The balloon is inefficient because of its levity; the flying creature is efficient because of its weight.
    0
    0
  • The inertia of the mass of the flying creature enables it to control and direct its movements in the air.
    0
    0
  • The only facts in natural history which appear even indirectly to countenance the flotation theory are the presence of a swimming bladder in some fishes, and the existence of membranous expansions or pseudowings in certain animals, such as the flying fish, flying dragon and flying squirrel.
    0
    0
  • Weight and power are always associated in living animals, and the fact that living animals are made heavier than the medium they are to navigate may be regarded as a conclusive argument in favour of weight being necessary alike to the swimming of the fish and the flying of the bird.
    0
    0
  • It may be stated once for all that flying creatures are for the most part as heavy, bulk for bulk, as other animals, and that flight in every instance is the product, not of superior levity, but of weight and power directed upon properly constructed flying organs.
    0
    0
  • This fact is important as bearing on the construction of flying machines.
    0
    0
  • It shows that a flying machine need not necessarily be a light, airy structure exposing an immoderate amount of surface.
    0
    0
  • The flying machine must be multum in parvo.
    0
    0
  • Extensive inert surfaces indeed are contra-indicated in a flying machine, as they approximate it to the balloon, which, as has been shown, cannot maintain its position in the air if there are air currents.
    0
    0
  • A flying machine which could not face air currents would necessarily be a failure.
    0
    0
  • These appliances as indicated should not be unnecessarily expanded, but when expanded they should, wherever practicable, be converted into actively moving flying surfaces, in preference to fixed or inert dead surfaces.
    0
    0
  • As there are active and passive surfaces in the flying animal, so there are, or should be, active and passive surfaces in the flying machine.
    0
    0
  • The active surfaces in flying creatures are always greatly in excess of the passive ones, from the fact that the former virtually increase in proportion to the spaces through which they are made to travel.
    0
    0
  • Nature not only distinguishes between active and passive surfaces in flying animals, but she strikes a just balance between them, and utilizes both.
    0
    0
  • She regulates the surfaces to the strength and weight of the flying creature and the air currents to which the surfaces are to be exposed and upon which they are to operate.
    0
    0
  • In her calculations she never forgets that her flying subjects are to control and not to be controlled by the air.
    0
    0
  • While, however, diminishing the surfaces of the flying animal as a whole, she increases as occasion demands the active or wing surfaces by wing movements, and the passive or dead surfaces by the forward motion of the body in progressive flight.
    0
    0
  • The elytra serve as protectors to the wings when the wings are folded upon the back of the insect, and as they are extended on either side of the body more or less horizontally when the insect is flying they contribute to flight indirectly, in virtue of their being carried forward by the body in motion.
    0
    0
  • The bodies of flying creatures are, as a rule, very strong, comparatively light and of an elongated form, - the bodies of birds being specially adapted for cleaving the air.
    0
    0
  • Flying creatures, however, are less remarkable for their strength, shape and comparative levity than for the size and extraordinarily rapid and complicated movements of their wings.
    0
    0
  • He further pointed out that the wings of flying creatures (contrary to received opinions, and as has been already indicated) strike downwards and forwards during the down strokes, and upwards and forwards during the up strokes.
    0
    0
  • Lastly he demonstrated that the wings of flying creatures, when the I By the term aeroplane is meant a thin, light, expanded structure inclined at a slight upward angle to the horizon intended to float or rest upon the air, and calculated to afford a certain amoune, of support to any body attached to it.
    0
    0
  • The figure-of-8 and kite-like action of the wing referred to lead us to explain how it happens that the wing, which in many instances is a comparatively small and delicate organ, can yet attack the air with such vigour as to extract from it the recoil necessary to elevate and propel the flying creature.
    0
    0
  • This space, as already explained, is practically a solid basis of support for the wing and for the flying animal.
    0
    0
  • If the wings were not driven at a high speed, and if they were not eccentrics made to revolve upon two separate axes, they would of necessity be large cumbrous structures; but large heavy wings would be difficult to work, and what is worse, they would (if too large), instead of controlling the air, be controlled by it, and so cease to be flying organs.
    0
    0
  • To meet these peculiarities the insect, bird and bat are furnished with extensive flying surfaces in the shape of wings, which they apply with singular velocity and power to the air, as levers of the third order.
    0
    0
  • The power is represented by the wing, the fulcrum by the air, and the weight by the body of the flying animal.
    0
    0
  • The flying body must act against gravitation, and elevate and carry itself forward at the expense of the air and of the force which resides in it, whatever that may be.
    0
    0
  • In this case the air in rapid motion strikes the under surface of the kite and forces it up. The string and the hand are to the kite what the weight of the flying creature is to the inclined planes formed by its wings.
    0
    0
  • The existence of such a law is very encouraging so far as artificial flight is concerned, for it shows that the flying surfaces of a large, heavy, powerful flying machine will be comparatively small, and consequently comparatively compact and strong.
    0
    0
  • This is a point of very considerable importance, as the object desiderated in a flying machine is elevating capacity.
    0
    0
  • The way in which the natural wing rises and falls on the air, and reciprocates with the body of the flying creature, has a very obvious bearing upon artificial flight.
    0
    0
  • A bird when flying is a body in motion; but a body in motion tends to fall not vertically downwards, but downwards and forwards.
    0
    0
  • It only remains to be stated that the wing acts as a true kite, during both the down and the up strokes, its under concave or biting surface, in virtue of the forward travel communicated to it by the body of the flying creature, being closely applied to the air, during both its ascent and its descent.
    0
    0
  • If the wing was inelastic, every part of it would reverse at precisely the same moment, and its vibration would be characterized by pauses or dead points at the end of the down and up strokes which would be fatal to it as a flying organ.
    0
    0
  • It is easy to understand from this figure how the wing always flying forwards furnishes a persistent buoyancy.
    0
    0
  • A rigid wing can never be an effective flying instrument.
    0
    0
  • The kite-like surfaces referred to in natural flight are those upon which the constructors of flying machines very properly ground their hopes of ultimate success.
    0
    0
  • These surfaces may be conferred on artificial wings, aeroplanes, aerial screws or similar structures; and these structures, if we may judge from what we find in nature, should be of moderate size and elastic. The power of the flying organs will be increased if they are driven at a comparatively high speed, and particularly if they are made to reverse and reciprocate, as in this case they will practically create the currents upon which they are destined to rise and advance.
    0
    0
  • We are now in a position to enter upon a consideration of artificial wings and wing movements, and of artificial flight and flying machines.
    0
    0
  • After Pettigrew enunciated his views (1867) as to the screw configuration and elastic properties of natural wings, and more especially after his introduction of spiral, elastic artificial wings, and elastic screws, a great revolution took place in the construction of flying models.
