This aircraft was the first to make a non-stop westbound transatlantic crossing. On 1-2 September 1930 "Point D'Interrogation" flew 3900 miles from Le Bourget to New York City in 37 hours. The type is sometimes quoted as the Breguet 19 TF for 'Transatlantic Flight'.
Prior to the move of the Musee de l'Air to Le Bourget, many aircraft were stored or displayed at Chalais Meudon. This Breguet, named "Point d'Interrogation" set a world distance record of 4,912 miles (7905 km) in September 1929 by flying from Le Bourget to Manchuria. In 1930 it completed the first successful East-West crossing of the Atlantic, flying from Paris to New York.
