Hi,

from the book; Louis Blériot L' envol du XXe siècle - Blériot- Aéronautique ( SPAD - Blanchard -
Guillemin )
and in 1917 competition for multi engined BN.2 & BN.3,a two and three seat night bomber,
the tenders were;
Voisin XII,Letord 9,Bleriot 71 & 73,Farman 50,Caudron C-23 and CEP 2

What was CEP 2 ?,I search on the book; French Aircraft of the First World War,
but nothing I found.

Hi,

I presume it was this "Caproni built under licence Esnault Pelterie" : Caproni Esnault Pelterie 2.

http://www.traditions-air.fr/unit_en/avion/avions_ww1_01.htm

I understand that it was the name of the Caproni Ca.3 built in France (30) by Esnault Pelterie and the Société Anonyme d'Applications Industrielles du Bois (SAAIB) :

It does appear, Hesham, that all four of those illustrations came from my post on another forum (http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/showthread.php?17-The-Ongoing-Mystery-Aircraft-Thread-Part-Deux/page452) and assuming that is where you found them, you might have had the courtesy to mention as much and give credit to the source! Oh and this aeroplane also was known as the Marais-Lauret Ailette.

FWIW, in my files this is named the "Vinet monoplan 1911 Type D."

A larger version of Toura's image is available here:

L'avion monoplan Vinet en mai 1911
Référence PL-PL0260 / Collection Pierre Léotard

Anyone know what that 5-cylinder engine is? A 35 hp Viale radial, perhaps?
