Cornu Aîné Ballon Remorqueur
The ballon remorqueur, or balloon tug, was a patented dirigible airship conceived and drafted by Cornu Aîné of Nuits, Cote D'Or, France, during the years 1852–1854, with the intention of using compressed steam as its system of propulsion to tow a train of balloon carriages as a proposed aerial express running between Paris and London. The steam reactor system employed a pivoting "point d'appui aerien" (aerial fulcrum) in the shape of a bell set three meters ahead of the nose of the dirigible express. By injecting steam into the bell and deflecting the steam rearward, M. Cornu planned to steer the craft by articulating this hinged fulcrum device.
