Site of the first seaplane flight

The Fabre Hydravion or Le Canard (French: "The Duck") was a French experimental seaplane designed by Henri Fabre, and the first seaplane in history to take off from water under its own power.

It successfully took-off and flew on March 28, 1910, at Martigues, France for a distance of 457 m (1500 ft) over the water. Apart from the achievement of being the first seaplane in history, Fabre had no flying experience before that day.
