Flight, June 11, 1910

The Henry Farman Monoplane.

   ON the 2nd inst. Mr. Henry Farman was out testing his new monoplane at Mourmelon when his best flight was for two circuits of the flying ground. Although the machine was only two metres above the ground it manoeuvred quite easily and is said to have carried a load equal to 22 kilogs. per sq. metre of surface. Further trials were also made last Saturday with equal success.

Flight, June 18, 1910


   LAST week we published details of the successful trial flights made by Mr. Henry Farman on his new monoplane, and now we are able to give a couple of photographs of the machine with Mr. Farman at the wheel. It will be seen that the main plane resembles the upper plane of the Farman biplane, with the usual ailerons at the ends. The span is 8 metres, the overall length is a little less, while the weight is given as 300 kilogs. The general arrangement of the framework is clearly shown in the photograph, but an important point in connection with the design is that the main planes are some distance above the framework, so that the aviator has a clear view of the ground beneath him. A Chauviere tractor is fitted, driven by a 50-h.p. Gnome motor. The rudder is mounted above the rear plane, with a triangular fin in front of it, while the rear plane itself is divided, the rear half serving as an elevator.
