    At least this is a raritie for me: Salmson Bechereau SB 3 (Avions magazine #108, march 2002). Another beautiful bug. Contestant in the coupe Beaumont in 1923/4/5. Enjoy this jewel!

    Interesting machine. In looking at it's profile, it almost seems to have been influenced by the WWI German Albatros and Roland aircraft.

    Nice find mate! I've seen a Salmson motor in a collector's museum in NZ, but never knew they made aircraft aswell...

    Interesting adds, mates. The plane had the tipical "teardrop" profile to have good penetration in the air.
