Default Everything old is new again

Popular Mechanics magazine, February 1914, page 267, an article describing an angle of attack indicator for "aeroplanes".

https://books.google.com/books?id=tN...page&q&f=false

Too bad it took so long to catch on.

The page number in question is at the upper right of the magazine page. It's not the same as the image page number which starts at 1 for the cover. If you scroll down to the magazine index page (image page 5) you can click on the article directly (Angle Indicator, An Aid To Airmen). That will take you to page 267 of the magazine.

I guess the ironic thing is that it only took the FAA a hundred years to recognize that the improvement in operational safety was worth the risk of installing an "uncertified" AOA indicator in light planes.
