Default My Air France fleet First shelf

We are between 1933, creation of AF and 1952.

Thirteen of these models are home made, the little Dragon Rapide is a Helmet product, the other models are well known.

More to come.

Jean Pierre.

Thank you Jean Pierre for taking the time to photograph your amazing collection. I recognize everything but F-ARDA which is just ahead of the Catalina.

Thank you all for your kind words.

The F-AORA is a Farman 2234, the last four-engine aircraft built by Farman.
It is an evolution of the Farman 220, a night bomber, many variants were made, different noses, different engines, but they all look very similar and it is very easy to be confused.

The aircraft was intended for mail service, its range was huge but it never flew over the North Atlantic.

Three aircraft were built, with the outbreak of WWII they were transferred to the French Navy, one of them gained the distinction of being the first allied aircraft to bomb Berlin after a solitary flight at night.

Flying alone, at night, many other missions were made over Germany and Italy to the dismay of Hitler.

This aircraft was obsolete in 1940.

Jean Pierre.

I think this is my favourite shelf Jean Pierre.
The uniqueness and level of detail is simply beautiful
