L. Bleriot.

   FOUR monoplanes are on view on this stand, the 70-h.p. two-seater, which Hamel has popularised in England, the familiar 50-h.p. cross-country model, a new 50-h.p. racing monoplane, and a new low horse-power monoplane, type XXVIII, designated the "Popular" type. Of these machines we are already familiar with the former two, and no description of them is necessary.
   The new single-seater "Popular" type of machine, as its name infers, should also become widely known during the forthcoming year for, while it is capable of fairly extended cross-country flying, it is inexpensive in initial cost and upkeep. The landing-carriage is applied to the bottom of the fuselage, a feature which not only diminishes its weight and head resistance, but reduces the overall height of the machine to something under 7 ft. From the pilot's point of view, the machine possesses the advantage over the ordinary school type, that the fuselage in front of him is totally enclosed, thus preventing any oil from being thrown back over him by the engine. A section of the floor of his cockpit is left uncovered, so that he is capable of seeing the ground immediately beneath him.
