Hi,


from Les Ailes journal,the designer Pierre Bazoin created two aircraft projects,the
first was tourist aircraft with inverse "M" shape,and the second was a six-engined
huge transatlantic flying boat in a weird configuration.

With regards as to the transatlantic flying boat, was it intended as a WIG (Wing In Ground effect) design, do you think?

One wonders how this thing could alight on water without nosediving

Anyone know how many Salmson Moineau S.M.1 were completed? Sources vary between a couple of prototypes and all 155 ordered. Some sources even have them in operational use as night bombers in 1918!

Actually, the text makes it clear that the illustration is the same aircraft in plan view and profile, a concept for a light aircraft inspired by the classic paper dart.  There are additional horizontal control surfaces forward for "added stability" though I am not sure why that was though necessary.  Here is the whole clipping for anyone who can read (or muddle through) French as the source is in the public domain.
