Flight, October 29, 1910


   Messrs. Turcat-Mery and Rougier have designed a biplane of the later type developed by Breguet and Goupy amongst others. The tendency towards reducing the area of the main planes is here clearly demonstrated. The four-branched propeller, also of Turcat-Mery design, is placed in front of the machine, and is driven by a 60-80-h.p. E.N.V. motor. The tail plane, with which is combined the elevator, has underneath it two rudders. The control is by a wheel mounted on a pivoted pillar actuating the elevating and wing-flexing wires, and a foot-bar for steering. To the excellent two-wheeled chassis of this machine is fitted a brake which acts on the ground itself, and is worked by a lever at the pilot's right hand. A pathetic interest is attached to the Turcat-Mery, as not only was it designed by a pilot, Rougier, whose accident at Nice has incapacitated him from further flying, but it was to have been flown by the unfortunate Chavez had he lived. There is, however, to all appearances, a successful future before it.
