Under the gaze of a world captivated by man's continuing efforts to conquer the skies, Louis Bleriot became one of the most famous men on earth when people all over the world read about his pioneering first non-stop crossing of the English Channel on 25th July 1909. Landing his aircraft at 5.12am within sight of Dover Castle, he had also claimed a handsome £1000.00 prize in the process.

Bleriot XI Monoplane

Designed by Louis Blériot with the aid of Raymond Saulnier, the X1 was first flown on January 23rd, 1909. The X1 had a 28hp REP engine and a wire braced shoulder-mounted wing using a wing-warping system for lateral control, similar to the Wright Flyer. It was in this aircraft that Blériot won the £1000 prize offered by the Daily Mail newspaper for the first flight across the English Channel.
