THE MONACO SEAPLANE MEETING: At Monaco: Two French flying boats. That nearest the camera is the Tellier-Hispano of the Toulon squadron, which was to make the Monaco-Tunis-Monaco hors de concours. The other machine is the Sunbeam-engined Tellier-Nieuport flying boat which M. Sadl Lecointe entered to fly in the Monaco-Tunis-Monaco flight.
The Tellier-Hispano boat, piloted by Hurel, which is taking part in the flight to Tunis. This machine has two Hispano engines, one driving a tractor and one a pusher. In other respects it is similar to Lecointe's machine
One of two French Tellier T.3 flying-boats acquired by the RNAS in late 1917, N85 is seen here at the Naval Experimental Air Station at the Isle of Grain, Kent, fitted with a COW gun for armament and camouflage trials. Air firing against moored targets showed promise, and it was thought the gun could be effective against submarines.
