Flight, March 29, 1913.

An Armoured Aeroplane.

  THERE are many novel features about M. Bleriot's latest monoplane which has been tested at Buc during the past few days by Perreyon. It is of the Canard type, with an elevator in front, and the propeller arranged behind the main plane. There is also a fish-tail shaped rudder placed only 15 cms. behind the propeller, while there are three fish-tail shaped fins arranged at the rear of the inner half of each wing; ailerons extend from this point along the outer half. The body of the machine, which is arranged so that the observer lies flat, and looks through windows, is covered with steel plate to protect the occupants from rifle fire.
