Air Gives Emergency Power. If one of its regular engines failed, this plane could still maintain smooth flight with the auxiliary air-propulsion system patented by R. P. Martin, of Seattle, Wash. Air is scooped in through the nose and fed to air turbines that drive the propellers, keeping the plane from yawing and preventing the bad engine from completely stalling.
