This was not a suggestion by Guynemer, but by Lorin!

Please try not to assert things if you're not sure. The article makes it pretty clear.

Neat, and considering the engine had a 1.1 litre and made those seven horsepower at only 1500 rpm, I bet those were more robust horses than we are used to in today's high-revving little engines. Do you have a date for the source?

In l'Aeronautique 1929,


here is a new idea by that time to fight against fire,but I am carious about the flying boat drawing,
was it just a hypothetical aircraft or real one ?,when I used the Google translate for the text,I found
that;



The fight against the fire on aircraft C. F. P. Wes. made an edit on this plate
M.H. Brunat, head of the Central Security Service at Air Ministry. The illustrations were executed by
our technical designer J. Gaudefroy. We publish below, a few sketches, taken from the most suggestive,
This clear and well-ordered that the C.F.P. Aé study.send on demand, and is an extremely codification
interesting simple rules whose application significantly reduce the risk of fire.

Thanks, hesham, but the article you posted is incomplete.  The complete article with many construction details from the magazine l'Aéronautique, No. 276, November 1939, pp 431-437 is available courtesy of the Gallica Bibliothèque Numérique (French National Library online digital archives):  http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k6554255p/f25.image.langFR  There is lots of great stuff in there, I am going to have to spend some time looking around.  I tried posting the actual .pdf of the article (reproduction permitted for non-commercial use with acknowledgement of the source) but it must be too big.
