Several french aircraft of World War 1. Right rear view of the French Brequet 14 biwing bomber. Gunner's circular ring gun mount seen in rear cockpit. Camera pans along right wings. View, from right side, of a Caproni Ca.3 trimotor biwing bomber taxiing forward, with nose wheels off the ground, after ground crewman steps out from under from under right wing. Diamond 5 painted on its fuselage. Characteristic triple tail,tail skids, double wheels, and tricycle gear,are visible. view from left side of another Caproni, with Diamond 1 painted on its fuselage. Aviators occupy tandem seats. The aircraft rests on its tricycle gear. Ground crew pull chocks from wheels and it makes right turn out from parking position. Rear view of a parked Caproni shows twin forward engines and rear pusher engine of the aircraft. Next sequence shows an unusual Voisin V experimental aircraft, tail number V.1889, parked in front of a hangar. As the camera pans from the tail forward the aircraft looks like a standard model 5. However, as the view extends to the cockpit, the fuselage is seen to extend much further, forward, and a mechanic works on something (engine) in the extended fuselage. As the camera continues panning, it appears to show another propeller (puller) installed at the front. So this aircraft number V.1889, appears to be the Voisin V (only one) that was modified as an experimental twin engine (pusher-puller) version, in 1916.
