Flight, September 17, 1910


   I send you a photograph of a monoplane recently designed and built by M. Raoul Vendome. The general construction is extremely strong, the fuselage, which resembles slightly the Le Blon Humber, having successfully borne the weight of six men without any signs of breakage. Lateral stability is controlled by ailerons, worked by the hand-wheel seen in the photograph. This wheel is mounted on a lever, of which the forward or backward movement operates the elevator. Steering is by a foot-lever, as on a Bleriot. M. Henry Jacques, who has already purchased three of these machines, has made some excellent flights during the last few days. He has very kindly placed one at my disposal for practice purposes, so that shortly I shall be in a position to give personal details of its behaviour in the air.
