The 'Great War' (1914-1918)

The Voisin LAS bomber, with its all-metal airframe..

Escadrille Voisin


It's hard to believe, but these enormous triplanes...

...were constructed a mere eight years after the first closed-circuit kilometre machine!


Designed by Gabriel Voisin in conjunction with engineer Alexander Nemirovsky and Dr Tilmant, the prototype air ambulance called L' Aérochir...

...was based on the Voisin X bomber airframe, modified with pods to accommodate the injured on stretchers and a complete field hospital.

There is a lot to say about Gabriel Voisin and planes, I will have, perhaps, to write more about it...
