"Schneider Cup 2"

    In 1914 the second Schneider Cup race was won by a modified Sopwith Tabloid biplane, giving Great Britain its first win. The original Tabloid was quickly modified with a large single float for the race. The plane promptly capsized when set in the water. With time running short, the race team split the original float lengthwise and spread the pieces apart, producing the more stable twin float configuration which is common today. The Tabloid was soon doing business as a landplane scout in the "Great War".
