Biplane Propeller

Biplane Propeller

If you didn't already know, a biplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with two main wings stacked one above the other. The first powered, controlled aeroplane to fly, the Wright Flyer, was a biplane. Biplanes offer several advantages over conventional cantilever monoplane designs: they permit lighter wing structures, low wing loading and smaller span for a given wing area. The yellow biplane feature in today's new puzzle is powered by an engine using a wooden propeller. Propellers are made from wood, metal or composites and are used to convert rotary motion from an engine or other power source, into a swirling slipstream which pushes the propeller forwards or backwards.
