   LITTLE need be said of the Caudron exhibit for the monoplane is, except for minor details, exactly the same as the one Ewen has at Hendon, and which has already been described in these columns.
   The hydro-biplane shown is of the combined wheel and float type that has been adopted by the French Minister of War for use in their Colonies. The machine itself is the property of the French Government, for it is stamped with their official seal on every part. It has much the same characteristics as the Caudrons we have been used to seeing at Hendon, except that the lower tail outriggers have nothing to do with the chassis but are taken from the lower rear wing boom. The rudders too are larger, there being auxiliary rudders below the tail plane. MM. Rene and Gaston Caudron hold a patent in their combined landing gear. The essence of it is the arrangement of the wheel to the rear of the step in the float in which position, they claim, the water does not touch it once the machine is in progress over the surface. There is no springing in the chassis at all - the floats are rigid and the only resiliency at the wheels is that provided by the fat pneumatic tyres. The monoplane, as we have already said, is essentially the same except for the changes in the engine cowl and chassis. These are better conveyed by sketches than by words.

THE CAUDRON HYDRO-BIPLANE AT MONACO. - On the left she is entering the water. In France it is termed "a true aero-amphibian," for, by virtue of its combined wheel-and-float undercarriage, it can rise from and land on both land and water. On the right, the Caudron hydro-biplane landing after a flight. It is interesting that this machine requires no help other than that of its own engine to come back to land after running over the sea.

General view of Caudron Flying School at Le Crotoy showing their 200 h.p. Anzani hydroplane specially built for the Deauville competition. - On the left is a closer view of the machine, giving some idea of the size of the propeller and the situation of the cylinders on the 200 h.p. Anzani. This engine has a forced oil feed which is worked by two miniature propellers fixed on the lower plane. Our view is taken from the tail of the machine, and it should be noted that this machine is of the engine behind or pusher type.
