"Bleriot (No. 9)."

   Monoplane built at the Bleriot works. It has a V-section longitudinal girder frame, part of the surface of which is formed by the Bleriot flexible radiator described elsewhere. Additional radiating surfaces, constructed on the same principle, but in a different form, are arranged, Venetian blind fashion, in front. Vellum-like paper is used as a covering surface for all the planes and the body. At the rear are the rudder and the elevator, also a small fixed horizontal plane. The tips of the main wings are pivoted for steering, in conjunction with the rudder. In front is the engine, a 50-h.p. 16-cyl. Antoinette, driving a 4-bladed flexible tractor screw mounted directly on the crank-shaft.
