Lelièvre 1912 monoplane
This stubby monoplane was built by Vendome. The wing was mounted on the top of the short covered fuselage, with the engine set almost at ground level, driving through a chain the tractor propeller that was mounted slightly forward of the leading edge. The pilot sat inside the fuselage under the wing, entering through one of the side doors. It flew frequently at Issy in late 1912 or early 1913; it crashed in August.
