Henri Fabre 1882
On March 28, 1910 a Frenchman by the name of Henri Fabre made the first powered takeoff from water at La M harbor, near Marseilles.
Fabre named his seaplane Hydravion. It looked extremely fragile, and when Fabre made this flight it was the first time he had ever piloted an aircraft. The actual flight covered about a mile and a half at just a few feet above the water. The length of the aircraft was 27 feet 10 inches and the wingspan was 45 feet 11 inches. The frame was constructed of ash with cotton covering, and the pandora shop floats were made from plywood. Total weight of the Hydravion was 1,047 pounds and the cruising speed was 55 miles per hour.Fabre had not been the first to attempt a takeoff with a seaplane. An Austrian by the name of William Kress had built his own aircraft and tested it on Lake Tullnerbach, near Vienna, as early as October of 1901. The seaplane floated for a pandora charms on sale while but was not able to achieve takeoff. While making a turn, it capsized and sank. Kress, who was close to 70 years old, did not repeat the experiment.Gabriel Voisin and Ernest Archdeacon built a glider that was designed to takeoff from water. They tested it twice, in June and July of 1905, on the Seine River between the towns of S and Billancourt. The glider was pulled by a steamboat and on both occasions the airplane managed to rise above the water and fly for a few hundred feet.Louis Bl had begun his career as an airman with a seaplane in the same year. Bl purchased a variant of the Voisin Archdeacon glider (this particular aircraft became known as the Bl and came close to drowning when he tested it for the first time. Bleriot then designed his own seaplane glider, the Bleriot III, which he tested on Lake Enghien in May of 1906. The test was not a success.In America, Glenn Hammond Curtiss began testing a seaplane in 1908, but it took until January 26, 1911, at San Diego, before the first Curtiss seaplane could takeoff from the water. That aircraft, known as the D Hydro, had a central float and two stabilizers under the wingtips. Pennsylvania, which was anchored in San Diego harbor. That flight convinced the Navy to buy two seaplanes, designated A 1 and A 2.Henri Fabre authentique pionnierCes jours derniers, bien des habitu de l'a de Marignane devaient regarder avec jewelers that sell pandora le premier hydravion du monde, restaur par une d'enthousiastes de l'Aerospatiale.
