Photo Comment

The Donnet-Lévêque 'Flying Fish' was a succesful early flying boat, selling to Austria-Hungary, Denmark and Sweden before WWI, and the precursor of the FBA (Schreck) types. This replica of a Type C model has wheels like the original prototype in 1912. It was first flown here at La Ferté-Alais by Edmond Salis on 16 November 2017.
