Hi

Does anyone know details about a small plane made by a friend of the Hon Daripple in 1938?
My father writes... "I have just seen a lovely little plane which is being tested just up Grantham hill. (Poss near Marlborough). it is a private experiment by the Hon Daripple and a friend who designed it. It is a small plane, very safe, with a Ford 10 engine which develops only 27hp and max speed 120mph range 500 miles. It goes 60 miles to the gallon and costs 300."

Cheers Motherbird.

Sounds like the Chilton Monoplane - the designers were Hon. Andrew Dalrymple (note spelling) and Alexander Ward.

You can find more info on the aircraft's website:
