Hanriot VIII
Marcel Hanriot in a 1911 Hanriot Militaire Triplace Type VIII
Hanriot entered three machines into the 1911 Concours military trials. The VIII looks very similar to but perhaps a little larger than the VII, except there is no tank on the pylon. Since one of the requirements of the Concours was that the aeroplane carry three people, possibly the tank was moved in the interest of headroom.
Hanriot’s craft was passed over at the trials because the fuselage was very slender and open which left the crew unprotected.
The VIII was powered by a 40hp Clement-Bayard.
