Hi,


the French designer M.R.Desmons was worked for L.A.F. (Ligue Aeronautique Francaise),and
in 1917 he built a biplane torpedo bomber flying boat,with pusher engine,followed by No.1 &
No.2 heavy bomber projects,before that in 1916,he created the Avion B bomber and a twin
engined attack bomber projects.


Also in 1917,a combat twin engined aircraft project was appeared with twin boom shape,and
anther single engined attack bomber project.


The torpedo bomber biplane with tractor engine project of 1917,never saw the light,in 1925
came the single engined monoplane twin hull project,it had a Model maybe for wind tunnel.


And again in 1925,a lightweight monoplane bomber with high-shoulder-wing projected,proceeded
with a twin boom attack bomber powered by single engined,followed by a three engine battle or
combat bomber,all in the same year,remained a projects only.

Interesting use of hydrofoils as structural components connecting the floats. I wonder about stability though...

Thank you Avimimus,


and Mr Robert Desmons designed a two seat tourist aircraft in 1932 with a high cantilever wing
and powered by one 40 hp Salmson engine.

Hi,


before I found this report,I knew only three aircraft to Desmons,the first was 1917 which actually
built,and the second of 1932 (reply # 4),and from Internet the third,it was a flying boat project
of 1920 ?.
