Fairy Queen - 1920
This is Pavely's famous 'Fairy Queen' of 1920. The model is original but was restored by Alwyn Greenhalgh. Inside the fuselage is a wire wound thin wall brass cylinder that has domed end caps and a 'tie' rod running from front to back. Up to 150 psi was applied to this cylinder when the aircraft was in regular use but I only use about 30 psi - to demonstrate the motor turning that beautiful propeller.
