    I disagree with their use of the term "flat"...I prefer "linear." "Flat," to me, implies neither rising or falling (e.g., "flatlined").

    To what extent are you looking at? Just putting in a battery to run a radio? Or adding a generator/alternator?

    I'm no DH expert, but I'd agree with your DH.60 identification. I'd go out on a limb and guess Cirrus Moth vs. Gipsy, just from the amount of engine showing atop the cowling.

    Wickham never made his plans public; don't know what happened to most of them. May have donated them to Seattle's Museum of Flight or the Aeronautical department at the University of Washington.
