This is a Borel-Morane monoplane, similar in some respects to the Bleriot, but lighter and faster. It was constructed by a company founded by two brothers, Gabriel and Albert Borel, and a third partner, Leon Morane. It dates to 1911, and has the distinction of being the only surviving one of its kind.
More panels examine thematic issues like airshows and practical uses for planes beyond the spectacle in those early years.
Next to the Borel-Morane is this one. The McDowall monoplane is the work of a Canadian engineer and land surveyor, Robert McDowall. Living in Owen Sound, Ontario, McDowall built this in a carriage shop in his free time.
Overhead, a hang glider is suspended.
