Artist's Description

My vector drawing of an 1874 steam powered monoplane flying above Barda village in Romania, shown in sepia.

Felix du Temple de la Croix was a French Naval officer who received a patent for a flying machine in 1857. This version never flew, but the steam engine design was successfully used to power boats in later years.
By 1874, he had developed a lightweight steam-powered monoplane which flew short distances under its own power after takeoff from a ski-jump.
