Obre No.1
Émile Obre in his first biplane on the field Issy-les-Moulineaux, Paris, France, 1908
Émile Obre designed his biplane as a tractor with the Anzani 3-cylinder air cooled engine was fitted about 1,5 meter from the nose. The top wing consisted of a rectangular form with a special curve form. The span of the lower deck is 10 metres.
The power given (50 hp) for the 3-cylinder Anzani is very optimistic.
When testing the machine on 18 January 1909 at Issy-les-Moulineaux the machine crashed and was demolished. It was not repaired.
The machine was not a success but Obre went on and designed a completely new pusher biplane.
