Aircraft & cavalryman. Early aircraft frightening the horse of a French cavalryman. The aircraft, an Antoinette tractor monoplane, is being piloted by the French aviator Hubert Latham. This photograph, taken in 1909, was said to be suggestive of war of the future. It is certainly true that aircraft are now commonly used in warfare whilst calvary units are a thing of the past.
