Форум Breguet's Aircraft Challenge
This is the beautiful Bleriot LIII (Type 53) picture taken at Buc, where it is lifted in flying position by the mecanicians. Type is from 1915 and the first foray of Bleriot in twin-engined machines.
The engines were 10 cylinder Anzani engines of 100 hp. The Bleriot LIII lost out against the Caudron G.4.
The front part of the fuselage (la 'cabine') of the Bleriot LIII was hanged a few years as a memento from the ceiling of the Bleriot factory at Suresnes. As often done (for instance Spad) this was to remember the workers of earlier failures and to do better next time
