SOME FRENCH MACHINES AT THE SHOW
Aeroplanes Henry Potez
This firm is a newcomer into the aviation industry, as far as pre-War aviation is concerned. It is one of the firms which had not turned their attention to aeroplane construction until the War demand arose. It will, therefore, be of some interest to watch the future of the firm. At the Paris Show they are exhibiting two machines, one a passenger 'bus to carry four, and the other a little spotting two-seater.
The former - type S.E.A. VII it is called - is an enclosed biplane with seating accommodation for two or three passengers in addition to the pilot. The engine is a Lorraine-Dietrich, with which the machine attains a speed of in the neighbourhood of 200 kilometres (124 miles) per hour. The weight of the machine, all on, is 3,630 lbs. The overall length is 30 ft. 5 ins., and the span 46 ft. 2 ins.
