Hi J.C.!

I haven't found exactly what you want, but back in 1908 in France, the Marquis d'Equevilly designed a multiplane within a circular frame.

I'll keep looking!

hello !
This picture appeared in "Der Flieger " in the 50'
The plane was then entitled "August Klein " 1910
I never found any "August Klein " in my files .
I asked Mr Karlheinz Kens,who has published a lot of excellent books about german aircraft and projects ,and he told me the bird was still a mystery to him.
Who knows more ?

On the "Aerodrome" forum , Varese identified it , some times ago : It is the "Hoople Multiplane" built by W.P Gary (1910) in the United States of America ...
How has it been resurrected in the fifties in Germany as "A.Klein" remains a mystery ...
