Prior to the move of the Musee de l'Air to Le Bourget, much of the collection was displayed or stored at Chalais Meudon, which is where this aircraft was seen displayed. This is the third Canard built by Henri Fabre, and it differed quite a bit from his earlier attempts. This Hydravion (sea plane) first flew on March 28, 1910.

Seen at Chalais Meudon prior to the move of the Musee de l'Air et de L'Espace to Le Bourget. Built in 1915 this aircraft was unusual for the period in that it was a metal construction. The type was used as an observation and light bomber aircraft in WWI. Whilst it did not carry a serial at the time of this photograph it is now preserved in in a diorama at Le Bourget as V955.

This aircraft, built in 1917, was seen at the Musee deL'Air collection at Chalais Meudon before the collection moved to Le Bourget. It was basically unrestored and looked better for it. I am uncertain whether the markings are French or British.
