THE FIRST PARIS AERONAUTICAL SALON.

Kapferer ("Astra").

  Double monoplane built by the Soc. Sourcouf. It is a much larger machine than the majority of the single-seaters, and has a somewhat heavy appearance. The rear main plane has slightly less spread, and is slightly lower, than the front main plane; the pilot's seat is just in front of the rear plane. At the rear extremity of the longitudinal girder is the rudder and the elevator, both members being divided to extend on each side of a central axis. The engine - a 7-cyl. 35-h.p. R.E.P. - is placed right in front and drives a 2-bladed tractor screw mounted direct on the end of the crank-shaft.

The Kapferer-Paulhan (Kapferer-Astra) No 2 - perhaps No 1 without the tail outriggers. Note the small numerals 1 and 3 painted above the wing roots: presumably 2 and 4 are on the other side, and all 4 panels may be the same.

The tandem Kapferer-Paulhan No 3. The 2 men plus the 35 hp REP proved inadequate to get the aeroplane into the air.
