Blériot 110 seen in The Conquest of the Air.

The Blériot 110 was a French aircraft, designed by Italian aircraft engineer Filippo Zappata, intended to attempt new world aerial distance records in 1930. It was built specifically at the request of the French government and was a large high-wing cantilever monoplane. The aircraft's first flight on 16 May 1930 was cut short by a fuel supply problem, although no damage was sustained. After repairs, it was taken to Oran, Algeria, to make attempts on the closed-circuit distance record. Between 15 November and 26 March 1932, the Blériot 110, with pilots Lucien Bossoutrot and Maurice Rossi, broke this record three times; the final occasion staying aloft for 76 hours 34 minutes and covering a distance of 10,601 km (6,587 mi). By this time, the aircraft had been named Joseph Le Brix in honour of the aviator who had perished flying the 110's rival Dewoitine D.33. On 5 August 1933, Paul Codos and Maurice Rossi set a new straight-line distance record, flying from New York to Rayak, Syria - a distance of 9,105 km (5,658 mi). Further records were attempted over the next two years, but when all proved unsuccessful, the 110 was scrapped.
