Salvador Monoplane

In 1910, mechanic-electrician of the Carcel Modelo de Valencia, Arturo Salvador Gómez, designed and constructed a monoplane at Valencia, Spain, completing the craft in 1911.
The airplane was presented in public on the occasion of the Valencia-Alicante-Valencia aerial raid and subsequent Aviation Festival held at the airfield of La Malvarrosa Beach from 29 to 31 July.
Lacking the engine, the plane was bought by the Aragonese pilot Gregorio Campaña, who had broken his own design plane by falling into the water during the Raid. Campaña intended to equip the Salvador monoplane with the 50 hp Anzani engine from its shattered plane. On August 6, 1911, Campaña departed from Valencia in the direction of Huesca taking with him the plane of Salvador and the remains of his own.
He arrived in Huesca on 9 August and flew on 11 and 12 August. It is not know if the flights made were with the airplane of Salvador with the Anzani engine or if he repaired his own airplane.
