Hampshire IAS – Gosport’s Unknown Engineer
Vic Hutfield was a pioneer in the fields of motorcars, motorcycles and aeroplanes, he was born in Gosport, Hampshire, in May 1887.
Vic’s greatest achievements must be constructing aircraft, as he built two, the first was for a Naval Officer and in 1909 he built the RAS monoplane, possibly one of the first aircraft in Britain to fly without an aided take off.
Others did get airborne before Vic, but they all had to be towed or pulled to gain lift-off.
