    Wow! Thanks. Great. Amazing. I never knew the bomber had another set of controls at the nose. The only things I had about French built aircraft was that I actually flew a 180hp Molane Saulnier and Robin DR400 years ago. The Robin was a very maneuverable and fast plane and was a joy to fly. Cheers!

    Thank you very much,
    I am modelling this plane right now in 3D and those pictures are brilliant. Have not seen something like these before :)

    Dear Pierre and all of you guys,
    This is the only remaining photo I've got about the subject that I didn't post.
    Hope that can help a little for your modeling project,
    Best regards,

    Is it possible to repost the first pictures? As I am in the process of modelling a Lioré et Olivier 451 for FSX these pictures are of great interest for me. As a matter of fact this belongs to the best french reference material I have ever seen...

    With kind greetings, Roland

    Great idea! I am very interested in the notes technique Breguet 691 (and also of course the Leo 451). My interest in the Brequet was aroused when I managed to obtain the book "Le Sacrifice" about the role of the 691/693 during the battle of france. How do I participate?

    With kind greetings,

    Roland
