In September 1911, Mr. Henry Breguet made with this aircraft a pioneer non-stop flight from Casablanca to Fès (Morocco). Preserved in Musée des Arts et Métiers in Paris (a former church). The circle on the ground is a part of Foucault's pendulum - an easy-to-see proof of the Earth rotation.
This is the plane, with which Louis Bleriot crossed the Channel on July 25, 1909. Mr. Blï¿½riot was not only a brilliant engineer, but also a trully brave man - imagine him flying on this bunch of fabric and wood over the sea! The aicraft is preserved in Musï¿½e des Arts et Mï¿½tiers (a former church, very difficult to shoot in).
