Nicolas Salamanca

Francois Nicolas' only design was sponsored by Marquis de Salamanca. An automobile-body-builder in Biarritz, Nicolas based his monoplane on the Antoinette, but made his even bigger. The triangular-section fuselage was long and slender, about one meter deep. Fully covered, it carried a long triangular tailplane and elevator. The rectangular wings were of dramatic seagull shape and supported by six kingposts and a forest of brace-wires.
The aeroplane is reported to performed "careful hops" on the Biarritz airfield, France, in 1910.
