Morane Saulnier Type H replica F-AZMS
This replica of the 1913 aircraft was photographed at La Ferte Alais on 14 May 2005.
The Morane Saulnier type H was designed in 1912 by the brothers Léon and Robert Morane in their plant in Vélizy, France. It became famous in the hands of the company pilot Roland Garros, especially after Garros' crossing of the Alps and the Mediterrean Sea.
In 1913 it was equipped with floats and participated in the first Schneider Trophy Race for seaplanes in Monaco. The aircraft incorporated wing warping for lateral control and had a balanced all flying elevator and a balanced rudder but no fin.
