Cobianchi Brescia
Mario Cobianchi was a Bolognese designer and draftsman, who had Sicilian-born engineer Franz Miller build his 1909 Brescia biplane, powered by a 100 hp Miller engine. It was originally intended to have both a helicopter-like propeller on the top wing and a pusher propeller in the rear.


Even after being modified several times, it never did get off the ground except for a few brief hops. After being strengthened and modified from its original state, it was entered in the Circuito Aereo Internazionale di Brescia, Brescia, Italy, September 8th - 20th 1909, but it still didn't fly.
