Re: Research info about HF II with number 11

Hi Anthony, and welcome to the forum!

A nice photo, thanks for posting! It looks very much like the machine that Russian pilot Michel Efimoff flew during the first days of the April 1910 Nice meeting - see this page! Later during the meeting it was repainted with a larger race number.

New pages: The July 1910 Baden-Baden meeting!

This was a three-day meeting, organized in waiting for the start of Zeppelin services at the Baden-Oos airfield outside the famous spa town. Only three pilots (Emil Jeannin, Adolf Behrend and Stefano Amerigo) participated, and only the two former made flights of any length. You will find the pages h...

New pages: The July 1910 Wiener Neustadt meetings!

The first two aviation meetings of Austria were held over four Sundays in July 1910. They were national meetings, restricted to flyers based at the Wiener Neustadt airfield, but this included most known Austrian constructors and pilots. http://www.thefirstairraces.net/meetings/wn1007/images/poster34...

Re: Hayden Sands

Hi Walt, and welcome to the forum! I don't know all that much about Sands, but the aviation magazines reported that the "New York sportsman" was the first person that ordered a Blériot XI after the Channel fllight. This obviously never came through and he bought an Antoinette instead. He a...

1909 Douai Meeting - pages updated!

The Douai pages were among the first to be published, six and a half years ago. During the years I've found some more old aviation magazines, and Gallica have published more old newspapers, so I decided to update them. The result is around 80 percent more text and a handful of new or improved photos...

New pages: The 1910 Reims meeting!

Hi everybody, I managed to finish the 1910 Reims pages before the end of the holidays! This was the biggest meeting during the pre-WW1 era, with no less than 76 airplanes entered, and almost every aviation record was broken. It is the second biggest installment of thefirstairraces.net in terms of th...

Re: New book about the German Wrights

As far as I can tell from a quick look, the book only contains one page with brief notes about Abramowitsch's flights at the May 1912 Johannisthal "Frühjahrsflugwoche" and his July-August 1912 flight to St Petersburg.
