MS-204: Charles Lewis Collection
According to contemporary English sources, a pilot named Kluijtmans entered the biplane category at the 1909 Rheims aviation meet, at which no more than a third of the aircraft actually succeeded in flying. Whether Kluijtmans was among the lucky few to succeed is doubtful. This image suggests that he may have had more success flying dirigibles in Japan.
