    Note the pic with the underbelly exposed. A rare view.

    You really have to try hard to make an aeroplane look that ugly. Did this kite inspire Hanna-Barbera for some of the contraptions flown by Dick Dastardly's motley crew?

    Hey Wurger, were you laughing like Muttley? Really should have sound effects for some of these icons. :)

    I've often wondered what sort of thinking (or maybe drinking!) was behind some of the French designs of the period. How on Earth some of these shapes ever got to the drawing board (maybe they didn't, judging by some, probably just built from visualisation!), let alone built, is a real brain-buster !
