Yes gentlemen it is the Funk B
It was not me in a funk. I thought you did not have so much sparkling imagination?
Not so very obsolete. Several in museums some still flying.

Noyade has the wheel.

Thanks, Noyade for your forebearance and tolerance. Give me a few moments. It may be a cockpit first.

A cockpit, first.
This may appear more interesting in the "Name that Flying Machine" thread, but I'll give it a go from this point. Only one ever built.

Nice challenge, the picture is a bit misleading though…

Well done, it is indeed. I think Noyade knew it all along. Apparently when power was applied even with brakes on the aircraft would raise itself slightly showing that quite some lift generated by venturi effect?

Now based at Mid Atlantic Air museum Spaatz Field, in Reading PA.

Asturias56 has control.

You want a picture of a whole cockpit, well, you've got one!
Still, Noyade and Asturias will have it in an instant I have no doubt...

Looks a bit basic for 1909 - its amazing how fast things developed post first flight

European?

European too. I think it was an attempt to go super-light and minimalist. Suffice to say I don't think it ever actually flew.
