  • Coanda 1910
  • In 1910, in the workshop of Gianni Caproni, he designed and built a 'ducted fan' powered aircraft, known as the Coandă-1910, which he displayed publicly at the second International Aeronautic Salon in Paris. The plane used a 4-cylinder piston engine to power a compressor, which was intended to propel the craft by a combination of suction at the front and airflow out the rear instead of using a propeller.
    This year, 2010, they commemorated the 100th anniversary and reprinted the book Henri Coanda and his aircraft. The project was done for the cover of the book.
