Flight, September 9, 1911.


The Astra Triplane at Issy.

   BOTH the new biplane and the triplane produced by the Astra Works have been tested nearly every day during the past week at Issy. Only straight flights have been made with the triplane, but the double-decker was taken round the ground several times on Monday by Goffin, who is conducting the tests.

A TRIPLANE, ONE OF THE LATEST PRODUCTIONS OF THE ASTRA COMPANY. - This is another of the machines designed in view of the French military aeroplane competition. The canoe type of body is similar to that of the latest biplane, but other special features are the design and arrangement of the wheels. The span is 12 metres, and the lifting surface 45 sq. metres, while the propeller is driven by a 60-h.p. 8-cyl. Renault motor.
