AN INTERESTING FRENCH SHIP'S 'PLANE: A single-seater parasol monoplane scout constructed by Ateliers des Mureaux of Paris. Fitted with a 300 h.p.

There are also two stumpy, wing-like floats mounted on each side of the fuselage, low down near the nose, whilst the undercarriage can be dropped bv the pilot before alighting. The span of the machine is 39 ft. 4 ins., the weight, empty, 1,980 lbs., and fully loaded 3,124 lbs.
