Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beardmore Wee Bee was a single-engined monoplane that was built specifically for the Lympne two seat light aircraft trials held in the United Kingdom in 1924. It won the major prize, though only one was built. The Beardmore W.B.XXIV Wee Bee I was the company's winning entrant to the Lympne Aerodrome light aeroplane trials of 1924. The competition rules were framed to encourage more robust designs than those that had competed as "motor-gliders" at Lympne the previous year; they were to be single-engined two-seaters, with engine capacities up to 1,1000 cc allowed. The total prize money was 3,600.; the first prize 2,000.
