Brzeski Aquila

Initial configuration

Brothers Wincent and Rudolf Schindler, wealthy millers from Kraków, built in 1908 a working model airplane and in 1910 they commissioned a talented engineer Henryk Brzeski to build a plane to their ideas, named Aquila (Latin for "eagle"). In August 1910 it was demonstrated on the ground to emperor Franz-Josef I, and several days later a test-flight attempt was made, during which it crashed into a fence at the outskirst of the airfield.
