Photo Comment

First flown in 1926, the Parasol kit aircraft was technically and commercially succesful. Edward Heath's company sold 50 assembled aircraft and nearly 1000 kits, several hundred of which were finished and flown by homebuilders. A 25-hp Henderson B-4 modified motorcycle engine was the standard powerplant. The Museum of Flight completed its original kit in 2008.
