Caption: Early 20th Century autogyro. Historical image of an autogyro aircraft in front of the Grand Palais, Paris, France. An autogyro also known as a gyrocopter, gyroplane or rotaplane, is a type of rotorcraft that uses an un-powered rotor in autorotation to develop lift, and an engine-powered propeller, similar to that of a fixed-wing aircraft, to provide thrust. Image from 'Wonders of Peace and War', by Geza Supka, Hungary, 1939.
