Antoinette military monoplane

Antoinette military monoplane

The Antoinette military monoplane, sometimes known as the Antoinette-Latham or the Antoinette Monobloc was an early monoplane built in France in the hope of attracting orders from the French military. It was a substantially redesigned member of the family that began with the Gastambide-Mengin I in 1908, featuring a number of aerodynamic refinements. It had cantilever wings, without any bracing wires, and the aircraft featured spats to enclose the landing gear struts. However, these refinements made the aircraft too heavy to fly with its 37 kW engine. Nevertheless, it was exhibited at the 1911 Concours Militaire at Reims, where it failed to attract any orders. ... more on Wikipedia
