The Blackburn First Monoplane was completed in April 1909, with a 35-hp Green inline engine, but refused to fly. The Blackburn Second Monoplane (sometimes described as The Light Type Monoplane)used the then new and untried Isaacson 40-hp radial engine; it flew from Filey Sands in Yorkshire on 8 March 1911. Surviving damage on that occasion, it subsequently went on to achieve a number of successful flights (and landings); this aircraft marked the acceptance of Robert Blackburn as a leading British aircraft designer, along with other British pioneers, such as Alliot Verdon Roe and Geoffrey de Havilland.
