Farman Flying Machine

Wonderful 1909 image of the Farman Flying Machine in flight. I love how the men in the foreground are waving their hats in celebration.

  1. WOW! What a great photo! So many older photos are stiff and posed. I love the candids. The body language with the hats is wonderful. Almost feels like we were there! Can you imagine how exciting that was?

    Just catching up on old posts - thanks again for sharing.
