Re: Photo Morane Saulnier

Hello,


Currently on ebay is a photo of a rare Morane Saulnier aircraft, I believe it is an early form of the Morane Saulnier AN at :


https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Biplan-MORAN...4AAOSwxRpfA1gX


It somewhat resembles the Morane Saulnier ANB, but the wing mounted radiators on the macchine in the link are distinctive. Can anyone definitively identify the aircraft shown as the early AN?


Regards,


Clint

Hello Clint

Yes, it’s the early Morane AN. Low drag and good visibility were not in the specifications... 1917 seems however too early. Interesting photo, indeed.

Regards
Jean

Re: Photo Morane Saulnier

Hi Jean,


Davilla and Soltan have construction starting in Jan 1918 and evaluation at the STAe from 27 October of that year,so 1917 definitely too early. Is the serial number of the machine known at all?


Regards,


Clint

Hello Clint

October 27 is also given by Albert Eteve (la victoire des cocardes, 1970). For the serial number further research is needed, but hope is little. I put that on my list for the reopening of our local aviation library here in Lyon, closed for summer holidays and flying diseases.

Regards
Jean
