Van Pomer 1910 Biplane
 
In 1910 John Van Pomer built a single-seat copy of Curtiss A, one of the undocumented first attempts by early home-builders. Based on the then-popular Wright design, power was a 35hp Kemp engine.
 
A colleague, who as a teenager helped with the construction, said that he once had ridden on the wing in one of its short flights, which were always downhill and never involved turns.
 
The aircraft was located in a barn and recently restored to display condition at Empire State Aerospace Museum, Schenectady County airport NY
