Contal 1910 monoplane

During 1909 and 1910 Camille Contal of Mourmelon, France, the inventor of a three-wheeled car called the Mototri, built several monoplanes. The 1910 machine had a narrow triangular fuselage was covered with sheets of mahogany with a 50 hp Gnome overhung at the nose. The rectangular wings could be warped, with the front spars fixed through steel fittings to the top two ash longerons, and the rear spars hinged. The pilot sat with his legs extended so that he could set his back easily against the seat without having to be strapped in.
