Model of Clark Dyer's Airplane in Museum

The wings on the model are left uncovered to show how Clark's design allowed him to move the wings to navigate the airplane. The wings could be tilted upward and downward in four directions.  
The to-scale model of Clark Dyer's airplane is on display in the Union County Historical Society Museum in the Old Courthouse on the Square.  You can scroll down and click on "Older Posts" to learn about the building of the model by Jack Allen of Blairsville, GA.
