Re: The 1910 "Semaine d'Aviation de Touraine"

It doesn't happen that often, but once in a while a couple of new photos turn up. You will find two images that I believe haven't been published before on the "Planes" page, and one more on the "Events" page. The pages are here.

The "Pilots" pages

Since a couple of years ago I've been considering what to do with the "Pilot" pages. There's a lot of pilots, the number has now passed 200, and we have a rather big backlog. To make things worse, the pages should ideally be updated after each new meeting. This would mean spending more tim...

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.
