Here's a new challenge. From the documentary "Conquest of the Air" I've gathered 42 different photos of aircraft. Every day I will post one photo to identify. I don't have all the answers so I am relying on other experts out there for the answer. Some are easy, some are not. It's meant to have fun and get discussion going.

Day 4 was a 1906 Traian Vuia with pneumatic tires and a motor worked by carbonic acid.
