Dear Sir,

I┤ve read your page about Hanouille, you say in your page that if someone have information can send you an email: i can say you that Hanouille hadn┤t died on 16 March of 1914, he had died on 14 March, i┤m sure because i┤ve found photographs about the accident.

i hope this information can help you,

InÚs Aguado
Editor's Note: I thank InÚs for this bit of information regarding the date of his death. I hope we will be able to see the photographs of the accident.

If you have any more information on this pioneer aviator
please contact me.
