Aeroplane Competitor’s Success

At the meeting of the Conisborough Aeroplane societies on Wednesday evening, hearty congratulations were offered to Mr C.C. Allport, for his performance at Sheffield on Saturday, winning two first prizes in one second, out of three events, at the Sheffield Aeroplane Societies meeting.

Mr Allport won the first prizes for speed and direction was second in the distance competition.

It was arranged to hold a return meeting in Conisborough on Saturday, November 4, 1911, when the Sheffielders intended coming over in force to try and get a bit of their own back.

From numerous entrances this meeting promises to be the biggest so far held in the north of England.
