Bousson Auto-Aviateur
The Bousson Auto-Aviateur of 1900.
A Mr. Danilewsky hoped, thanks to a thorough study and to progressive improvements of his apparatus, to manage to do without the help of the balloon. It was also the hope of Mr. Firmin Bousson, who built and tested in 1900 an airplane suspended under an elongated cylindrical balloon, mounted on four wheels and operated by a petrol engine, is intended to roll on land like an automobile, or to fly in the air. Wheel tests were conducted at the Avron plateau in October 1900; hindered by bad weather they did not give positive and complete results.
