Aviation Progress France Airplane


Original vintage aviation advertising poster - 20 ans apres Plus de sceptiques Joseph Prudhomme... Mon fils, lui-meme, court prendre l'avion! 1908-1928 / 20 years later No more skeptics Joseph Prudhomme ... My son, himself, runs to take the plane! - featuring a great image of a man wearing a hat and carrying an overflowing bag with a telescope and umbrella running towards a plane next to a ghostly outline of a man directing the way, another plane flying overhead by the dates and information commemorating the 65,000km round-the-world flight by Costes and Le Brix in 1928 and Farman's success in 1908. Printed for the l'Exposition Officielle au Salon de l'Aeronautique / Paris Air Show (since 1909); design by Georges Villa commissioned by the Comite Francaise de Propagande Aeronautique / French aeronautical propaganda committee founded in 1921. The French aviators Joseph Le Brix (1899-1931) and Dieudonne Costes (1892-1973) set flight distance records and were awarded for this round-the-world flight that included the first flight across the South Atlantic Ocean; the Anglo-French aviator Henri Farman (1874-1958) flew a circular circuit of 1 kilometre in the Voisin-Farman I biplane in 1908, the first machine powered biplane in Europe. Good condition, creasing, tears, foxing, punched holes along left and right margin.
