Brauner and Smith Biplane
The 1909 Brauner and Smith biplane was designed and built by Pincus Brauner and A. J. Smith, who were members of Aeronautic Society of New York, Morris Park. Their biplane was the second aircraft of the Society to fly. Both Brauner and Smith made numerous flights in the machine proving its airworthiness. Later, the aircraft was exhibited at Madison Square Garden. Eventually Brauner, while attempting to reach a greater height, raised his front control too acutely, and fell backwards, almost totally destroying the machine, but he escaped unhurt.
