Design for wing which expands at the ends (tips) into 'boxes' made of webbing; boast: “Moreover, other things being equal, the supporting power of the wing—that is, its power to make the machine float when used as an aeroplane—is increased to such extent that a smaller wing, if built in accordance with our invention, may take the place of a larger wing of ordinary construction.”And, the patent claims that the web-box creates automatic stability for the vessel against wind gusts
