Description

Ambroise Goupy's No. 1 was the first powered triplane to fly. The Goupy was powered by a 50 hp Antoinette engine designed by Leon Levavasseur. Shown here, it was built by Voisin Fréres in 1908. Not satisfied, his second design was the first biplane with staggered wings. The aircraft was built by Blériot's factory in cooperation with Italian pioneer Mario Calderara.
