  AEA White Wing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The White Wing (or Aerodrome #2) was an early aircraft designed by Frederick W. Baldwin and built by the Aerial Experiment Association in 1908.
The wings were equipped with ailerons controlled by a harness worn around the pilot's body; leaning in one direction would cause the aircraft to bank to follow.
First piloted by Baldwin himself on May 18, the aircraft flew very well, and three days later, Glenn Curtiss made a flight of 1,017 ft (310 m) in it.

 AEA Silver Dart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Silver Dart (or Aerodrome #4) was an early aircraft which was flown off the ice at Baddeck, Nova Scotia on February 23, 1909.
The frame and structure of the Silver Dart was made of steel tube, bamboo, friction tape, wire, and wood.
The wings were covered with rubberized silk balloon-cloth.

 AEA Red Wing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Red Wing (or Aerodrome #1) was an early aircraft designed by Thomas Selfridge and built by the Aerial Experiment Association in 1908.
It was named for the bright red color of its silk wings - chosen to achieve the best result with the photography techniques of the day.
On March 12, Frederick W. Baldwin piloted the aircraft off the frozen Keuka Lake near Hammondsport, New York in what would be the first public demonstration of a powered aircraft flight in the United States.

So when an AEA member, Lieutenant Thomas Selfridge, wrote to the Wrights in January 1908 for information about aircraft construction, the Wrights answered promptly and also referred him to their patent and other publications for more details.
The first powered aircraft built by the AEA was called the Red Wing, after the color of its silk fabric wings.

Curtiss was the engine expert of the AEA, a group of young men who sought to design and build an airplane, mentored by Bell and financed by Bell and his wife.
The aircraft was similar in construction to Red Wing, incorporated the engine salvaged from its wrecked predecessor and employed motorcycle wheels and tires provided by Curtiss.
The AEA was flying, Tom Baldwin was building airships; a Hungarian built a light monoplane; a Connecticut man built and flew a tethered helicopter; another inventor was building a huge dirigible--all with Curtiss engines.

 Curtiss-Wright Corporation - Wing Warping, Ailerons, and Litigation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
To effect wing-warping, it was necessary to twist the aircraft's wings differentially; the trailing edge of the outer right wing twisted upward, the corresponding area of the left wing, downward.
The Wrights' wings were flexible enough to allow this and were suitably connected by steel wires to a shoulder harness worn by the pilot.
The Wrights had corresponded with the AEA from time to time, reminding Curtiss particularly, that they held lateral control patents for which they expected royalties if the Association 's aircraft were sold commercially or reaped a profit from exhibition fees.

 AmericanHeritage.com / MAN IN MOTION
After launching many successful gliders by running off the hills around Hammondsport, the AEA began construction of “Drome Number One.” Its wings, 42 feet long, curving toward each other, and tapered at the ends, were covered with the same red silk that Bell used for his kites, and so the plane was named Red Wing.
Still, the AEA had gotten into the air, and Bell’s Boys, as they were now often called, were elated and ready to build a larger, sturdier craft that would fly even longer.
In the Red Wing, vertical control had been achieved with a large elevator ahead of the wings, and horizontal control with a vertical rudder placed above the tail, but there was essentially no means of lateral control.

The AEA members collected all the aeronautical literature they could find, including the patent newly granted to the Wrights, and their first aircraft was a blend of others’ ideas as well as their own.
The AEA seemed to him too scientifically high-minded for such a goal, so he defected from the Bell group; and on March 19, 1909, the Herring-Curtiss Company was incorporated for the purpose of manufacturing “balloons, aeroplanes, airships, [and] flying machines of any and all types.
Curtiss abandoned the arched wings for sturdier parallel wings, replaced the wing-tip ailerons with a pair of larger ailerons mounted between the wings, reduced the wing span for greater speed, and mounted a watercooled engine for greater reliability.

This aircraft, known as the Red Bird, was representative of many of his later designs and can be distinguished by its anhedral (down-sloping) upper wings and dihedral (up-sloping) lower wings.
Nonetheless, the success of the Red Bird and a modified Red Bird II led to the founding of the Christmas Aeroplane Company based in Washington, DC, in 1910.
Unfortunately this gross lack of wing strength led to in-flight structural failures of both aircraft on 30 December 1918 and 1 May 1919.

Italian police have seized at least two Psion PLC PDAs (personal digital assistants) from members of the Red Brigades but the major investigative breakthrough they were hoping for as a result of the information contained on the devices has failed to materialize -- thwarted by encryption software used by the left-wing revolutionaries.
The devices, believed to number two or three, were seized from Nadia Desdemona Lioce and her Red Brigades comrade Mario Galesi, who was killed in the shootout.
Their predecessors left a swathe of blood behind them, assassinating politicians, businessmen and security officials and terrorizing the population by "knee-capping," or shooting in the legs, perceived opponents.
