Windback Wednesday - Dulwich Aircraft

Did you know that one of the first aeroplanes built in South Australia was constructed in Dulwich?

Dulwich resident Carl W Wittber (1879-1970) had a keen interest in aviation and worked as an engineer for various pilots, including Frederick H Jones. At a hangar on his property, Carl worked on his own bi-plane, experimenting with different engines. The plane pictured here in the Dulwich hangar in 1914 had an Anzani 3-cylinder 25 horsepower engine and was first flown at Smithfield.
