Additional Details:
The Voisin Biplane really consists of a series of box-kites with a box-kite tail and a single rudder in front for rising or falling and is mounted on wire wheels which enable it to obtain its initial speed by travelling along the ground previous to rising. It has a single propeller which is driven direct from the engine. The Voisin Biplane is one of the earliest types of French machines, the Voisin Brothers being for many years occupied exclusively with aeroplane construction. The original idea of this aeroplane was evolved by M. Chanute
