Barlatier and Blanc 1906 powered kite
 
 Barl-1906-01
 
This monoplane-like kite of Barlatier and Blanc (France) was powered by a small engine (1.25 to 2.25 hp) driving two tractor propellers. It was a proof-of-concept model for a planned bigger machine, and was tested in the spring of 1906, showing "remarkable stability".
 
The designers and builders were M. Barlatier, president of the Automobile-Club de Marseille and M. Blanc, a
lawyer.
