Rossel-Peugeot Monoplane
Rossel-Peugeot Monoplane of 1910
Frédéric Rossel, while already working for Peugeot a few years, and with car sales figures depressed at this time, turned his interests to aviation and convinced the Peugeot Brothers to form the “Société Anonyme des constructions aériennes Rossel-Peugeot”. Built by the Reggy frères, who also furnished the propeller, the monoplane was powered by a 50 hp Gnôme rotary engine. The first flight was piloted by Jules Goux - in 1913 the first Frenchman to win the Indianapolis 500 motorcar race - but just 5 minutes into the air the machine lay wrecked on the ground, with Goux unhurt.
