Grand Meeting d'Aviation de l'Anjou
Angers, France, June 3rd - 6th, 1910



1
Clément-Bayard "Demoiselle"
Pilot: Edmond Audemars
Engine: 20 hp Clément-Bayard O-2
Audemars' licence was not granted in time, so he couldn't participate in the official flights. Race number 1 was originally intended for André Crochon's Farman, but he withdrew at a late stage. (1)

Farman
Pilot: Daniel Kinet
Engine: 60 hp ENV V-8
The only photo of Kinet's machine that we know of - we would welcome a photo of it better condition! (2)

3
Farman
Pilot: Bertram Dickson
Engine: 50 hp Gnôme 7-cyl.
Dickson's machine, if it is the same, was quite different from at the Tours meeting. It still has equal-span wings, but a short fuselage and double rudders. (3)

4
Sommer
Pilot: Georges Legagneux
Engine: 50 hp Gnôme 7-cyl.
During the beginning of the meeting Legagneux's machine had the race number painted white on a dark rudder. (1)

Martinet's Farman differed from Dickson's in having short lower wing panels. (5)

Blériot XI
Pilot: Jacques Balsan
Engine: 30 hp Darracq O-4?
Balsan brought two Blériots to the meeting, according to the official program one with a Darracq engine and one with a "Liker" (should be Labor-Picker!) engine. (3)

Blériot XI
Pilot: Jacques Balsan
Engine: 40 hp Labor-Picker I-4?
The rudder of one of Balsan's planes was decorated with a cockade. It is also visible in the background of the photo above. (3)

Blériot XI
Pilot: Émile Aubrun
Engine: 30 hp Clément-Bayard O-2
The meeting program states that Aubrun's machine had an Anzani engine, but reports give it as a Clément-Bayard and photos clearly show a radiator up front. (3)

8
Antoinette VII
Pilot: Walther de Mumm
Engine: 50 hp Antoinette V-8
De Mumm also brought two machines. This one features a metal paddle-blade propeller and a forest of exhaust pipes and inlet trumpets between the cylinder banks, characteristic features of the Antoinette engine. (5)

Antoinette VII
Pilot: Walther de Mumm

The other machine was equipped with an ENV engine and a wooden propeller. The smaller radiators and the tank mounted on struts behind the engine are other identification features. (5)

Pilot: Marcel Paillette
Engine: 50 hp Gnôme 7-cyl
The race number of Paillette's machine was also repainted during the meeting. This is the early version. (3)

Later during the meeting the number was repainted in a light rectangle, like on all the other planes. (3)
