Caption: Louis Paulhan (1883-1963), French aviator, in an aeroplane. Paulhan, who taught himself to fly in 1908, is best known for flying 'Le Canard', the world's first seaplane, in 1910. He was a prolific aviator, and in 1910 he toured the USA, flying several models of planes and winning many competitions. He, along with many other aviators, was involved in a long-running dispute with the Wright brothers over aircraft patents. He also flew in World War I as a fighter pilot.
