Following the success of the Wright biplane, Sir Hiram renewred his long continued interest in aviation and in 1910 perfected a machine which he declared had certain advantages over the Wright's. It was he who, with others, interested the Biitlsn govern ment in beginning its organization of ar aerial navy, and though he was then 70 years old he lived to see the great war bring air fiyin to pass in even greater measure, probably, than he hrniself had dreamed.
