Domenjoz Glider
 
Domen-Gl
 
The Swiss (then) John Domenjoz was with Pegoud, the inventors of stunt flying; both were the first to complete a looping in 1913 while they worked at the Blériot School. By the late 20’s Domenjoz had got the idea to propel a glider by sail like the ancient ships. In 1930 he built in Maine this glider; towed by a car it did reach an altitude of 300 feet, but the sails proved to be utterly useless. The Domenjoz glider had an evident “Blériot connection” ….the Blériot XI type’s lattice fuselage and tail shape are all too obvious.
