Photograph of Louis Paulhan flying with a passenger (Mrs. Dick Ferris?) in his Henry Farman biplane, at the Dominguez Field Air Meet, Los Angeles, January 1910. Paulhan and his passenger are sitting at the center of the front wings in this primitive biplane. The nose is triangular shaped with a wing (or flap) in the center of the nose. A propeller spins just below the wings and between the two pairs of landing wheels. The rear of the plane consists of two square wings with a flap that runs perpendicular to the wings.
