Fabre Hydroplane

This picture from 1911 shows the Fabre Hydroplane, designed to take off and land on water. All I know is the guy in the boat is going to have to row a lot faster if they ever hope to get this thing in the air.


Hope you all have a Blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. Good photo, ingenious device.

    Could this man be the first to
    think of hydroplanes?

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

  4. Put on a suit and tie, straddle a 2 by 6, tow me out into the bay, and off we go into the wild blue yonder.

    Or not.

  6. This is one of the most interesting photos of early aviation I have ever seen. I wonder if it made it into the air.
