Illustration for Airlines written by David H Keller (published in Astounding magazine, v04n10, January 1930) by Wesso.

a.i) I feel appalled by the idea that I must accuse Wesso of drawing something based on the Henu Barque, but I must follow the idea that the Henu Barque has been reversed to becomes the helicopter plane, 

a.ii) The white blobs becoming the side windows, 

a.iii) The oryx horns becoming the tail fins

a.iv) The fan becoming the wings, 

a.v) The upper kestrel head becoming the left rotor blades. Meanwhile the crouching man becomes the pylons.

a.vii) His skirt becomes the electricity generator and horizontal pole becomes the cables.
