Arnal Le Mistral
 
 Arnal-LeMistral
 
A monoplane design of Léopold Arnal, who patented some features of the design in Belgium, pertaining to the landing gear and a sort of starting 'hook' which made the rows of personnel holding the machine when the engine was running superfluous. The pilot could handle this hook from the cockpit. It was built in October 1910 at Cateau (Belgium). Tests were made on 9 October and 21 November 1910 which ended in (small) crashes. In January 1911 "Le Mistral" was exhibited at the Brussels Aero Show.
