Schneider Cup 1921

Only the French showed up to challenge the reigning champion Italians for 1921. To assure victory, Italy fielded 10 planes to the French one. Seven didn't make it to start line and neither did the French. During the 200 mile race, a further two failed and the winning plane averaged only 117 mph, less than the previous year.
