    But it's so slow it would be a case of "...and you can still see it. It's not gone yet! Yes, it's still there!" etc etc.

    The Amiot 143 - more of a flying suitcase than the Handley Page Hampden!

    I like French aircraft, fascinating subject. I'm probably wrong, but I thought I saw an interior photo of the Amiot 143 showing dual flying controls so you could also fly it from that front ventral glassed area?

    Here's the Amiot 150 BE floatplane - a development from the 143 but with a revised tail and a larger wing surface...
