Blériot XI: Le Colosse de La Manche.

It seems this is a month of anniversaries. In these times of Brexit it’s somehow ironic to remember that 110 years ago a Frenchman took away Britain’s insularity. Louis Blériot crossed the English Channel at the helm of his most iconic brainchild, the Type XI.

Pretty neat commemorative postcard. It could have been another.
