Re: Photo Voisin

Thanks Jean

I all honesty I am not comfortable with the site you present and their listing of type V. Could easily be a mistake due to the V marking the unit used....

Cheers
Stig

Hello
The photo was taken at Paris, Place de la Concorde (recognizables columns and typical parisian cops), during the winter. The hunt for the "V" markings continue...

Re: Photo Voisin

Hello Jean,


Thanks. I was hoping someone could identify the location, but hadn't expected Paris. I'm guessing, and it is a guess, given the number 7 inside the V, it may ne a different unit than V.1354? I take it that the aircraft was exhibited to show the sacrifices of war?



Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Voisin

Hello


This could be the crashed Voisin (pilot Sachot, gunner Le Juge, both wounded), who suffered an engine failure the night from January 30 to 31 1918, during a German night bombing attack, and had to make an emergency landing at the place de la Concorde, ending in a low wall. The plane was removed two days later.



A remotely possible escadrille is the 114 (from a photo in "La Vie aérienne illustrée" a few days later, showing a Voisin X canon with an owl and two guys in front presented as Sachot and Le Juge). But that can be misleading (VB 114 was far from Paris at this date), and press photos had not to be accurate, specially at war time.



According to the press coverage (duly censored), the plane was a "Voisin-canon".



A more probable explanation for the chevron is the plane belonging to an escadrille of the "Camp retranché de Paris" (CRP), in charge of the aerial defense of the city. They were the Escadrilles 461 thru 472, each having a chevron oriented differently (>, <, V...). Best guess would be Escadrille 470, and perhaps more information in the book "les escadrilles de l'aéronautique militaire en France".



Regards
Jean
