The New Antoinette Tested.

  ON Sunday afternoon the new Antoinette machine illustrated in these pages the other day, and built for the French Army Competition, was put through some tests at Mourmelon, and, as far as can be gathered, gave every satisfaction.

LATHAM'S ANTOINETTE FOR THE MILITARY COMPETITION. - General view from the rear of this new machine which embodies a good many departures from previous Antoinette practice. The body is entirely enclosed, as also is the 100-h.p. Antoinette engine. The body has been so designed that the pilot has a complete range of vision, windows in the floor enabling him to see beneath him. The span of the machine is given as 15.9 metres, and the surface 56 sq. metres. The overall length is about 11 1/2 metres. The chord of the main planes is 4 metres at the junction with the fuselage, and decreases to 3 metres at the tip. The machine in flying order weighs 1,250 kilogs.

DETAlLS OF THE NEW ANTOINETTE. - On the left is seen the fore part of the new machine, showing the way in which the landing chassis is fitted under the wings and is enclosed. This also indicates the location of the 100-h.p. Antoinette engine inside the boat-shaped body and also the shape of the main planes, the trussing of which is all arranged Internally. The landing skids are 3.25 metres long, and each one is fitted with four wheels, two at each end. The view on the right shows the arrangement of the tail and the way in which the fixed plane can be adjusted, while the two landing wheels are also observable.
