Humber Aircraft

In 1908 the Humber Company announced that it was to start building Aircraft of the Bleriot XI type fitted with a 25 HP 3 - Cylinder semi radial Humber Engine.  It is believed that Le Blon and Lovelace monoplanes together with Sommer Biplanes were also produced. This  Image dated 22nd June 1912 shows a Humber Biplane with a 50 HP 4- cylinder water cooled engine. Two months Later all of the Humber stock of Aircraft  and  engines plus parts were to be auctioned off.
