On March 28, 1910, the first successful seaplane took-off from water at Martinque, France. The seaplane or Hydravion was flown by its inventor, Henri Fabre. A fifty-horsepower rotary engine powered the first flight, a 1650-foot distance over water and the sea plane Fabre flew was nicknamed "Le Canard", meaning the duck.
