Страна: Франция
Год: 1912


During the spring of 1914 the Eastbourne Aviation Company's 80 h.p. Gnome-powered Henry Farman seaplanes, flown by Frederick Bernard Fowler, the company's founder, made several visits to Volk’s Waterplane Station at Brighton. Seaplane joyrides had become the "fashionable amusement" at the resort, and applicants for flights were so numerous that many had to be refused because of fading light.
