Glowiński Bleriot XI La Manche

 
The plane was built in 1910-11 in Tarnopol. Kostruktor Bronisław Głowiński modelled himself during the construction on the construction of the Bleriot XI "La Manche" aircraft.
 
In contrast to the French prototype, the Głowiński plane had a metal hull structure with a triangular cross-section, a plate placed above the hull on the turret and had a different chassis layout.
 
The assembly of the aircraft was carried out in the constructor's brother's workshop, in a shed serving as a carpentry workshop and as a room for the final assembly of the aircraft.
 
The plane was flown on Błoniah Tarnopolskie in May 1911. Due to the heavy weight of the construction and the power of the already used Anzani engine, the plane performed only large jumps and short flights. Due to the total engine wear and lack of funds for further work on the aircraft, the constructor dismantled the airframe.
 
In February 1913 at the Second Lviv Exposition in Lviv, the constructor posed at the front of his plane with the engine.
