The Blackburn Second Monoplane (sometimes described as The Light Type Monoplane) of 1910 used the then new and untried Isaacson 40-hp radial engine. It first flew from Filey Sands in Yorkshire on 8 March 1911. Surviving damage on that occasion, it subsequently went on to achieve a number of successful flights (and landings).
