Thread: The Ongoing Mystery Aircraft Thread Part Deux.

    Thank you, Mike.

    Here's one that shouldn't be too hard so long as you note the feature that doesn't seem to have been widely recorded photographically.


  2. #18677
    I take it, Mike, you mean the front end ??

    Apparently one MH.52 was powered by a Mathis 7-cyl radial with three-blade prop ?

  3. #18678
    Exactly. I know of only three photos of the MH.52 with the singularly unsuccessful Mathis radial upfront. But enough of this gallic intrigue. Let's go over to Ecosse for the next mystery.

  4. #18679
    Which, obviously, did not originate in Ecosse!

    I thought this would have been away long before now. The headgear of the chaps on the right should surely indicate which country is involved ?

    The horizontal tail looks like the Blanchard/Farman in an earlier post. I couldn't find anything like it in my French info.

    You are on the right track, Chris.

    It will not surprise anyone to learn that it has at least two designations, and that, according to one's source, there were either one or two constructed !

    An unsuccessful competition aircraft.

    At last ! Yes, aka the Blanchard-Blériot C.1 in some sources, although I think the BB.1 is correct.

    It was supposedly based on a 'French fighter type', but I'm struggling to find out which one ! (Does anyone have any information on the Blériot 101 ?)

    Over to you, Uli (with a half-pint for Chris who got Blanchard..)

  10. #18685
    In the book “L’envol du XXe siècle” (DOCAVIA) there is a small paragraph on the 101 (as a predecessor of the 118). It had 2 engines. Your two Blanchard C1 are also mentioned.

    On with this:

    Yes, it is very distinctive, the Fernic T-10. George Fernic lost his life piloting this machine.

    The larger T-9 was one I have been mildly fascinated with over the years.

  15. #18690
    Yes I knew wouldn't last long over to you.

    This one has two wings as well, just not in tandem arrangement.
