Ottino and Wyllie Rotary Aircraft: The “flying” conveyor.

This unbelievable “thing” was the fruit of an idea patented by Giuseppe P. Ottino and George A. Wyllie in 1909. They called it a “direct lift device” and was exhibited at the Olympia in March 1910. No more data available, but a non-flyer a first sight. Anyway, they were not alone in such a quest.
