Morane Saulnier Type P


In 1911, the brothers Robert and Leon Morane along with Raymondem Saulnier, established the Morane-Saulnier aircraft factory. The first aircraft was built in 1912. The Morane-Saulnier P was a development of the type L parasol-wing monoplane. There were also two single-seat fighter versions, one with the standard parasol wing and one with the wing lowered to the top of the fuselage. The "parasol" was a fighter reconnaissance aircraft.
