  • Description

    Item title reads: " France's New Battleship Of The Air. First pictures of hitherto secret mighty armoured air fighter."

    Villacublay, France

    M/S front view of a huge aircraft, which has a huge metal shape. It is twin engined with windows at front and no aerodynamic nose. It has a conning tower above, plus a
    cockpit. It is impressively engineered, with sweeping shapes. M/S cockpit above, and brief ground to air shots of the aircraft in flight.

    Note: the item title is damaged. The aircraft looks scary and impressive, but this plane, made on the lines of a tank, was no aeronautical design success.
