Re: Photo Farman

Hello,


Currently on ebay a early Farman aircraft of tractor design named by the seller a Short Farman at:


https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/EARLY-AIR...0AAOSwRrJexmwP


This one has me stumped.Does anyone know the company designation of this machine and anything of its history?


Regards,


Clint

Clint

It is a design called Farman David (as opposite to the Goliath)
Type number was FF 65 and should not be confused with the F 65 or F 65bis.

I also believe what the flipside is saying is Sport Farman, but that is not easy to interpret with such "p's"

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Farman

Hello
This plane is related to the ace Edmond Pillon, chief pilot by Farman after the war. A lot of informations upon Pillon here (in French), with other photos :

Re: Photo Farman

Stig,


Thanks for the initial id, I was looking in totally the wrong area. Perhaps if I'd only read the back more carefully Just after I'd said in the Bristol thread that I wouldn't be linking to any of that sellers post war and civilian aircraft. Nought for two as our American cousins say.


Jean,


Thanks very much for the interesting link. Again, if only I 'd paid sufficient attention to Pillon's name . This is the second photo I've posted after the one in the Short aircraft thread, that I could have found on albindenis had I only known it.


Regards,


Clint
