Adds to the design described in Patent GB-1899-24848, which is an LTA aircraft with aeroplanes for navigation and ballonets. This patent includes more details for these elements, including the following:
"I find that I can obtain an improved result by dividing each single aeroplane into two or more subsidiary aeroplanes and connecting one to the other by tape webbing or other suitable material at several points along their length."
The airplanes are all moved in tandem.
Patent FR-1904-341792 is based on this one.
