Escapologist Harry Houdini brought this Voisin to Australia during a theatrical tour. At Diggers Rest on March 18, 1910 he made what is claimed to be the first sustained and controlled flight in Australia. While the flight is undoubted, whether it was the first remains a matter of debate. Houdini made 18 flights in Australia and the Voisin was shipped to the UK when he left the country. He never flew again and the eventual fate of the Voisin is not known. It seems it too never flew again. Photo from: National Library of Australia

First flying in 1937 this was a glider capable of carrying ten troops and over 1000 were built. They were used extensively in WW II particularly in North Africa and in the invasion of Crete. The example seen here is a replica built using many original parts and is displayed in this diorama as a part of the Luftwaffe Museum.

After the crash of his model II, only the 50hp Antoinette engine could be salvaged. That was used in the construction of a new model, the III. On 27-Sep-1908 it made its first flight, for a distance of 1500m. He continued testflying it for several months until his test field flooded. After his death in 1913 the plane was given to the City of Angers where it was kept under the vaults of the granary Saint-Jean where it was displayed until 1967. In 1986 the GPPA restored the aircraft for display in the Musée Régional de l'Air, renamed in 2013 Espace Air Passion.

The Varivol has a variable span wing that could be extended in flight for a slower speed on landing. The aircraft was intended to be raced in the Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe. It was built during WWII and partly destroyed at the Liberation. However, in 1946 it was succesfully tested in the Chalais-Meudon wind tunnel. But it never flew and never had a registration. Next it was forgotten in the back of a barn, until found in 2000 and brought to the Musée Régional de l'Air at Angers, from 2013 renamed Espace Air Passion.

The 102T is an ornithopter with two flapping wings in tandem. It was built in 1937. Testing the machine in the Chalais Meudon wind tunnel on 12-Apr-1938, the pilot progressively increased the power of the 77hp JAP engine, but then the left wing on the back broke, followed by the three others. It never flew and was stored until it was found in 2005 and brought to the Musée Régional de l'Air at Angers, where it was partially restored. The museum changed name to Espace Air Passion in 2013.

An anonymous MiG on a stick. Apparently it is Russian as the red stars appear in the right places whereas the Polish markings seem to be a later add-on. This is the same aircraft that appears in picture #0787970, shot eight years later when the red stars had disappeared.

The museum says that this is a Chanute 1896 replica, built in 1979 by Roger Adam, and loaned from the RSA since 1998. However, it doesn't really resemble a Chanute although it is clearly based on its design.
