We present an experimental investigation of interfacial fingering instabilities in a compliant channel, where the interface can adopt a planar front orthogonal to the direction of propagation over most of the channel width. Finite-length fingers develop on that front, similarly to the previously studied radial configuration with injection of air at constant flow rate (Pihler-Puzović et al., Phys. Rev. Lett., vol. 108 (7), 2012, 074502), but, unlike the radial case, the interface propagatesdoi:10.1017/jfm.2017.468 fatcat:ii7cslb6kvajdfxszesvjfepcu
