Very little is known about this machine other than it was a single-seat gyrocopter of fibreglass construction with a three blade rotor and fitted with a tricycle undercarriage and twin booms carrying the tail.
Mr Mac McKenzie is a gyrocopter enthusiast on the north island of New Zealand and in about 2007 commenced the construction of a 70 percent replica of the Cierva C.30 gyrocopter, examples of the original full-scale machine being flown in a number of countries around the world in the 1930s,
Mr McKenzie, a New Zealander, designed and partially built a biplane along the lines of an early French Breguet, the latter having been placed on display at the Olympia Aero Show in London In March 1909.
Little is known about this machine. The machine was designed and built in South Australia and comprised a metal fuselage and the framework of a cycle mounted thereon and a pylon above the cycle seat and a drive to the two-blade helicopter rotor and the two-blade tail rotor.

This aircraft was a one-off design by Douglas McIlwraith based in Biddaddaba, Qld who initially wished to build a replica of a Monocoupe and in the end built a biplane of his own design fitted with a six-cylinder Jabiru engine providing 89-kw (120-hp), this engine being fitted with liquid-cooled heads.
Ronald Mellow, a resident of Queensland, in the 21st Century has designed and built two light aircraft. The second [registration 19-7817] was of all metal construction and was a low-wing monoplane with an enclosed cockpit and fitted with a single-ignition Volkswagen conversion [1835-cc].
Designed by Sueo Honjo, and produced by Mitsubishi Jukogyo K K, the prototype G3M “Nell” powered by two 448 kw (600-hp) Hiro Type 91 liquid-cooled engines was flown in April 1935 and attained a maximum speed of 314 km/h (195 mph).

In 1936 the Japanese Air Headquarters issued a specification for a twin-engined monoplane heavy bomber and, to meet this requirement, a number of aircraft designs were proposed by Japanese manufacturers.
One of the most attractive aircraft to be operated during World War II, the Mitsubishi type 100 Command Reconnaissance Aircraft, or Ki-46, was designed by Tomio Kubo from the outset specifically for the strategic reconnaissance role and saw service throughout the Pacific, particularly over Malaya, the Dutch East Indies, New
The MiG 17 was a total redesign of the MiG 15, some 6,000 being built in the Soviet Union, and large numbers were built under licence in Poland (as the Lim 5), China (as the J-5, J-5A and JJ-5), and Czechoslovakia.
In December 1937 a specification was issued for a ground attack aircraft to be developed from the successful Ki-30 “Ann” light bomber and, designated Ki-51, and known to the allies as “Sonia”, the first or two prototypes was completed in June 1939, the second in August 1939.
With more than 10,000 examples built, having served with more than 40 air forces world-wide, having been licence built in India, China, Poland and Czechoslovakia, the MiG 21 series (known by the NATO name Fishbed) has been one of the most widely used jet fighter aircraft of all time, and
The Mitsubishi A5M Type 96 Carrier Fighter began its operational career in September 1937 when aircraft of the Imperial Navy engaged aircraft of the Chinese Nationalist Government over the capital, Nanking.

The Type L was a parasol wing single or two-seat parasol wing fighter designed in 1914 for surveillance and artillery observation, being built by Morane Saulnier with a single machine gun firing through the arc of the propeller, which was protected by armoured deflector wedges.
