   Farman - On the stand of the Aeroplane Supply Co., who are the English agents for Messrs. Farman Freres, will be found one of the latest military passenger type of Farman biplanes. This machine is a duplicate of that which holds the world's record for time in the air, i.e., 8 hrs. 12 mins,, when a distance of 380 miles was covered before coming to earth. The machine is beautifully finished and an interesting feature is that the pilot's seat is covered in similar to the body of a racing motor car, which shelters the pilot from the wind and lessens body resistance. The machine is fitted with a 60-h.p. Renault engine. We understand that the Aeroplane Supply Company are giving passenger flights on Farman aeroplanes at Hendon during the course of the Show.
