New pages: The 1910 Barcelona meeting!

Postby Anders » Mon Dec 08, 2014 6:52 pm

Similarly to the Sevilla meeting three weeks earlier, this was a small meeting with only five Blériot pilots, taking place at a horse racecourse. Louis Blériot himself made one of his last public appearances as a pilot, before high winds interrupted the action during a couple of days. The big star of the meeting was Belgian Jan Olieslagers, who was in the air almost twice as long as the other pilots together.

It was unfortunately difficult to find good photos from the meeting, so your contributions are very welcome. Anyway, you are welcome to read about the meeting here!

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!
