Gnosspelius No.2

In 1910 Oscar T. Gnosspelius failed to make his Bleriot-like monoplane fly, but an improved version succeeded in 1912.

Land-owner Edward Wakefield sited his own seaplane boathouse at Hill of Oaks on Windermere with a single purpose. He wished to involve the services of Oscar G. who lived at Silverholme directly across the lake. Some coincidence then, that Oscar's own seaplane first flew THE DAY AFTER Wakefield's 'Waterbird'.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
