This is the Blériot Type XXIII racer which was entered in the Gordon Bennett race of 1911. Unfortunately the extremely short wing cannot be seen on this beauty of a picture.

More pictures of this racer are in the report of the Race in Flight


Two of this machine were entered where Alfred Leblanc won the second place in the race and Gustav Hamel wrecked the machine completely after just a minute of flight !
