In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Avion III of Clément Ader seen in Episode 2 of Les faucheurs de marguerites.

The Ader Avion III (also known as Aquilon - a Roman god of cold winds -) was designed by the French engineer Clément Ader between 1892 and 1897. Its story is subject of controversy as most of the documents were classified a century long and lots of data were in fact hypothesis. As the designer worked financed by the French War Office, and despite original patents, the secret trials have had few witnesses. Clément Ader worked on original concepts never used then like wing's bat, four blades (like feathers) propeller, etc... The twin engined machine, devoyed of control surfaces except a rudder, could have jumped several hundred feet but failed to attract interest of military high ranking officials during trials on October 1897.

This page lists all films that feature the Avion III.
