This plane was probably built around 1912. I do not know by what company built this. Does anyone know what airplane this is?

  • $\begingroup$ I don't personally know what plane this is, but if you're really determined to find out, I'd recommend Wikipedia's List of Pusher Aircraft by Configuration as a good place to start. $\endgroup$ – Timpanus Apr 18 '16 at 21:06

It looks like a Farman Aviation Works design but many builders copied the Farman designs.

Most Farman aircraft had straight boxed struts but some had staggered wings and slanted struts:
