Air Pictorial 1955-08
J.Stevens - "Farnborough" in Europe
Model of the Fouga C.M.195 - the "swept-Magister" compressibility trainer.
Second prototype S.E. Mistral Mk.53 with experimental skids and oversize nosewheel - all non-retractable.
The most important aeroplane displayed at Paris, the Caravelle twin-jet airliner, seen here with flaps partly lowered.
The Leduc 0.21 mounted on the Languedoc launching aircraft.
The 0.21 ram-jet from the rear. It is completely different from any other ram-jet engine. The dazzling areas are the stainless steel shrouds. In the centre is the accessory-drive Artouste with the shadow of the nacelle beyond . There are six concentric rings of burners, each with an inner and outer ring of vortex generator blades. The black and white effect indicates primary and secondary combustion.
The Super Mystere IVBI with an Avon RA7R and a 45-deg. swept wing.
The third prototype Mystere IVB
A Mystere IIC with a SNECMA jet deviator on its Atar 101D. The "rings" of the deviator can just be discerned at the end of the jet pipe. When this photograph was taken the aircraft was in fact travelling backwards.
The Jodel-Wassmer D.120 two-seat de luxe version of the Jodel D.12.
Самолет Espadon с комбинированной силовой установкой построили в нескольких вариантах. На фотографии - S.O.6025 с ТРД Rolls-Royce Nene тягой 22,24 кН и ЖРД SEPR.251 тягой 12,35 кН. Размах крыла составлял 10,60м.
One of the SNCASO Espadon rocket research aeroplanes.
First photograph of a model of the nearly-completed Gerfaut II.
The Breguet 940 Integral model with slipstream-assisted wing (the flaps are lowered to the maximum lift position) which will take it off in a matter of a couple of hundred feet fully loaded.
The strengthened surfaces of the Payen Pa-49 "split" open to act as air brakes. This is an ingenious solution to the problem of mounting air brakes on an all-wing aeroplane, but inevitably leads to interference between the braking and directional controls.
The SIPA 1000 Coccinelle.
The SNCASE Durandal delta fighter has been under development for the past two years and two airframes are now well advanced at Toulouse. It is a "light fighter" in the sense that it is smaller than the Hunter and Sabre, being more of the Venom size - or the F-104. It has absolutely no connection with the NATO light attack fighters, having been designed to an earlier and quite different specification.
