Flying at Issy.
ONCE more the flying ground is resuming an animated appearance. On the 19th, Leblanc had the new Bleriot out, and covered three circuits of the ground at a height of 20 metres. The same day, Duclos, Thorms and Molleuf were practising on Bleriots, Maurice Clement and Audemar were trying their Demoiselles, Anzani was testing his biplane, Lieut. Bier was testing the Montgolfier monoplane preparatory to sending it to Budapest, and Andre Frey was flying on his Sommer biplane. These same flyers were out on the next day, and were added to by Temain who was flying at Wembley Park some time ago on a Bleriot, and Bunau-Varilla on a racing Voisin. On Saturday, Anzani was trying a Saulnier monoplane, which is fitted with a 50-h.p. Anzani engine; Vitzig was testing a monoplane with two propellers, Contenet was out on the Vendome monoplane, while Sasles was instructing two pupils in the use of the Zenith aeroplane.
