Taris No.2 monoplane / Monoplan de course Paul de Lesseps
This peculiar monoplane, also known as the "Monoplan de course Paul de Lesseps", was designed and built in 1910 by Taris, a Polytechnique graduate that taught aerodynamics at the Ligue Nationale Aérienne. A characteristic feature was its intricate triangular fuselage, uncovered and the front and covered at the rear and with a triangular cockpit floor breaking the lines. It was powered by a 50 hp Gnôme driving a ground-adjustable four-bladed propeller. It crashed in 1911.
