1 (?)
Wright
Pilot: Haine
#1 wasn't mentioned in the programs. A list in a newspaper mentioned an Englishman by the name of Haine. If he actually existed he didn't take part. The name was painted on one of the Wright hangars.

2
Wright
Pilot: Nicolas Popoff (Nikolai Popov, Николай Попов)
Engine: 30 hp Barriquand & Marre I-4
A standard Wright without wheels. A bad photo, but the Wrights didn't do much flying at the Cannes meeting, so they are mostly seen in the background of photos. (1)

Pilot: Marcel Baratoux

4 (?)
Wright
Pilot: Paul Bablot
Engine: 30 hp Barriquand & Marre I-4

Wright
Pilot: Vincent Wiesenbach

Molon brought two planes to the meeting, which was fortunate in view of his several accidents and incidents. Note the unique vertical "keel" surface below the front fuselage. (6)
