lasting a bit more than an hour. The picture above shows the participants at the end of the flight.
Later that year Louis Breuguet beat that record by carrying 5 passengers.(below)
And in 1911 noted French pilot and airplane builder Roger Sommer took 5 passengers for a flight in a Sommer biplane that lasted over an hour to set a new record. In all cases, no aisle seat, no window seat, no seatbelts, just barely a seat! but the most amazing view for all.
