    The aircraft shown is a Bleriot 5190 mailplane, Reg. No. F-ANLE, named "Santos Dumont". It was the only aircraft of its type to reach full construction.

    It was introduced in 1935 but was retired just 2 years later in June 1937, enabling you to reduce the clip's current date range of 1930-39.
