Re: Breguet XIX in Germany

This is quite interesting. There must be very few people who know about these aircraft.

The order for the Breguet 19, which was officially intended for meteorological duties, was placed in August 1925 and the Commission Militaire Interalliée de Controle en Hongrie gave their permission (an exception from the ban of military aircraft) on 15 September.

I thought that the contract was never finalised and that the aircraft never arrived in Hungary. If it did I am sure it was not sent to Germany, possibly via Germany back to France. The Junkers A 20 (s/n 10.51 H-Mxxx) crashed some time before 30 July 1926 and was later reapired and modified, or more probably replaced, by a Junkers A 35 (s/n 11.01 H-MAIA).
