Re: Need information about Edmond (Morelle)

Was there even an Edmond Dufour? Jean Dufour was a Voisin pilot, French license No. 96 Édouard Dufour was a Blériot pilot, French license No. 103 Louis Dufour was, I believe, a Farman pilot, French license No. 185 I have seen the name Edmond Dufour in an article in Flight and in a list of French lic...

Re: Need information about Edmond (Morelle)

Hi Alexander, I haven't been able to find much information about "Edmond" either, but I was the lucky one to find definite proof of his identity. He was an automobile racer before turning to aviation, and seems to have disappeared from the news without a trace after 1910. The last reports ...

Re: Seeking information on Edith Maud Cook

That's an interesting project! I made a quick search in the 1910 aviation magazines that I have access to in digital format. It seems that "Miss Spencer" or "Miss Spencer-Kavanagh" disappeared from their pages around the end of March 1910. This was around the start of the 1910 me...

New pages: The July 1910 Mülhausen/Mulhouse meeting

This was a minor meeting, with only seven pilots entered and a three-day program, held outside Mülhausen, now better known in French as Mulhouse, in Alsace, which was then a part of Germany. The meeting was badly hit by hard winds, but most of the prize money was taken by Emil Jeannin on a locally b...

Re: Early Aviation Postal History

Hi Paul, and welcome to the forum! Postcard collecting will keep you busy for a long time - thousands were published, and lots of them are available on auction sites like Delcampe. For many of the meetings that we cover postcards are the main source of illustrations. I mainly collect them for docume...

New pages: The 1910 Midlands Aviation Meeting!

The first national British aviation meeting was held on June 27th - July 2nd 1910, at the Dunstall Park racecourse in Wolverhampton. The meeting itself was considered an organizational success, but the weather was very windy most of the time and nothing very special was achieved. Twelve pilots made ...

Tours meeting pages updated!

The French National Library keeps digitizing more and more old newspapers and magazines, and as a result I've been able to update the Tours pages. Both the "Events" page and the "results" page is now much more detailed, the former with around fifty percent more text. You will fin...
