Just to show that it takes all sorts to make a world, is a French "no-wing" monoplane, M. Payen's racing single-seater; equipped with a 400 h.p. engine, it is expected to do great things.
The sleek lines of the Payen racer were spoiled when the radial was installed. The aircraft is shown before the cowling was fitted. At that time, the wing was equipped with all-moving wingtips instead of ailerons.
CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER! This is a new French speed machine designed by M. Payen and constructed at Etampes. Fitted with a 400 h.p. engine it is expected to attain a speed of nearly 400 m.p.h.!
