The official program appears to have disappeared from aeroplanedetouraine.fr, but another smaller version has been published at www.meetingsaerienshistoriques.com.

Re: List of meets in Germany 1910-1913

The one I have is the 1956 "zweite durchgesehene, verbesserte und erweiterte Auflage", but I think it must have been the first volume.

Re: List of meets in Germany 1910-1913

It only seems to contain the major meetings, though, for example not those of München, Mülhausen or Baden-Baden in 1910.

Re: List of meets in Germany 1910-1913

Hi Carl,
Welcome to the board!
I don't know of any online lists, but Peter Supf's book "Das Buch der deutschen Fluggeschichte" (1956, Drei Brunnen Verlag, Stuttgart) contains a list of 24 German meetings held in 1910-1912.

Re: Bar-le-Duc 1910 airmeeting

I don't have much on that meeting, but here's what "La Revue Aérienne" (1910-09-10) wrote: A Bar-le-Duc. Sur l'initiative de M. Chevallier, maire, et de M. Collin, président de la section de Bar-le-Duc de la Ligue Nationale Aérienne, assisté de M. Petit, trésorier, deux journées d'expérien...

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...
