McDowall Monoplane

McDowall Monoplane

Sorry for the hiatus! I’ve been travelling with family – went to Ottawa, Quebec City and Montreal – managed to get some sketches done and I’ll be posting them daily…

This one was done at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa. This is a plane that was basically hand-built in, (if I recall correctly) Owen Sound. Apparently, it was aerodynamically deficient, and was only good for short “hops”. So – not terribly efficient or purposeful – but quite beautiful.
