Re: Photos French Aircraft

Well Clint

To paraphrase Adolf Galland the interesting photos in this lot are the first and the last.

The odd experimental Henri Farman (photo 1) is especially interesting.
Why this aircraft is where it is stated to be feels also a bit odd to me, but who knows?
I have it listed myself as a HF 36 variant, poss built before (or after... )

First time I see the complete photo of the SA.2 with the Nieuports in the background (photo 17). Previously I have it as a "close-up" of the SA.2 only.

Cheers
Stig

Hi Stig,


I believe that the Farman in link No.1 is a F.45 as is this:

Looking at Kees Kort's site once again the F.36 looks quite distinctive though the tailplane is not unlike that on the F.45:

The Spad A.2 S.31 of N.73 can still be seen on the Spad thread of this board. I note the seller is the same in both cases.


Regards,


Clint

Hello

I agree, the Farman is a F 45.

Another photo (maybe of the same plane) here :

Re: Photos French Aircraft

Hi Guys

I agree, the first aircraft is the F.45
Missed out on that one in Soltan/Davilla's book.
The funny thing is that they have the aircraft both on p 247 (as the F.45) and again on page 256 (as unknown #4), and of course it was the latter I spotted...

Also must say the Farman aircraft are in a terrible order in the book.
Things would have been a lot easier if the various Farman types had been presented in
a) company order
b) type order

Cheers
Stig
