Horatio Frederick Phillips (born 1845 in Streatham[1] – 1924) was an early aviation pioneer from Great Britain. He was famous for building multiplanes with many more sets of lift surfaces (sustainers, as he called them) than would be normal on modern aircraft.

    This is pretty cool, and actually makes some amount of sense. Are there any modern airplane materials that have this principle on a super itty bitty tiny level?
