My vector drawing using Inkscape (no auto trace) of an 1874 steam powered monoplane. The background is from our garden in Romania.

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

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.
