Four children watch a Blériot XI in flight from a beach. The original French caption seems to indicate that the aircraft is being piloted by Louis Blériot himself.

Original French caption: Le monoplan XI de Bleriot pique droit vers la côte anglaise. (Blériot's monoplane XI heads right for the English coast.)
