Re: Bleriot Week at Seville

Hi Nick and please forgive me for the late approval of your posts! My only explanation for the 16.4.1910 "Flight" article is that they mixed up the Seville meeting with the Barcelona meeting, which actually took place on 1-8 May. The list of participants fits better with Barcelona. I was m...

Re: Bleriot Week at Seville

Hi Nick and welcome to the forum! As can be seen from our Seville pages the event did really take place. Grahame-White backed out at a very late stage, after the first posters and programs had been printed. The reasons given in the Spanish press were unclear, but some hinted at a crash. During his f...

Re: New pages: The 1910 Barcelona meeting!

I made an update of the Barcelona pages today, with some improvements of the text and a couple of new photos. There are still several very rough photos though, so if you know of better ones please let me know!

1911 Heliopolis meeting?

Hi Flugsport and welcome to the forum! To my understanding the 1910 meeting was the only one in Heliopolis. Even in February the desert climat with dust, thermals and sandstorms made it difficult for the airplanes of that time. Except in Germany the European Wright operations were more or less dead ...

1910 Lyon Aviation Week pages launched!

Hi everybody! Some moments ago I launched the pages about the Semaine d*aviation de Lyon, which took place on May 7th - 15th, 1910. It was one of the big international meetings of the French season, but it was heavily afflicted by bad weather, accidents and incidents. The most serious accident claim...

May 1910 St Petersburg meeting - help wanted!

Hi everybody! For different reasons I lost a bit of tempo this spring, but the pages about the 1910 Lyon meeting will soon be ready for loading. This means the next one will be the St Petersburg meeting, which started one day later on May 8th and attracted six pilots: Joseph Christiaens, Léon Morane...

I can't say I completely understand the reason for the problems, but they might have to do with recent changes to Google Maps.

I've now updated the URLs for all the embedded maps. I hope it solves the problems - if not please report!

Airfield maps don't work

The embedded course maps on the "Venue" pages don't display anymore. I don't know why, but it may be that Google Maps have made some changes. I'm not at home today, but I'll investigate this as soon as possible.
