M. Deutsch Orders an Aerial Yacht.

   ALTHOUGH he has not so far made any great use of his aerial limousine, M. Deutsch (de la Meurthe), no doubt inspired by the success of the hydro-aeroplanes at Monaco, has decided to order one of these machines, capable of accommodating several persons and able to arise from and alight on the water.

   WITH Rugerc at the wheel, the hydro-aeroplane built by M. Gabriel Voisin for M. Deutsch de la Meurthe was tested at Issy on Saturday last. With six passengers and a pilot on board it rose from the ground in 70 yds., but in landing the chassis was somewhat buckled. It is said that the machine, which is fitted with a 200-h.p. Clerget motor driving a four-bladed propeller, attained a speed of 110 k.p.h. The span is 22.5 metres and the length 12 metres.

The 200-h.p. "Hydro-aerobus" that has lately been turned out of the Voisin works to the order of M. Henri Deutsch de la Meurthe. Its Clerget motor drives a 4-bladed propeller at 600 revs. per min. It has a wing spread of no less than 74 ft., and has been designed to carry 6 people!
