The Brunet les Mureaux Reconnaissance Monoplane THE Ateliers des Mureaux, who are now using the old Kene Tarnpier works at Boulogne‐sur‐Seine, on the outskirts of Paris, have recently completed a scries of test flights at the Villacoublay Field with their newest monoplane designed for reconnaissance work. This machine, known as the 130 A‐2, is a two‐seater, high‐performance monoplane powered with a 500‐h.p. Hispano‐Suiza engine, and was designed by Brunet, one of the younger French aeronautical engineers. The parasol wing is of metal construction throughout, and, owing to its rigid structure and the absence of wires and smaller bracing members, can be dismantled in a very short time.
