Originally delivered to Trans-Canada Airlines as CF-TGQ in Jun 1955, and acquired by Air Inter on 6 Mar 1964. It was registered as F-BMCF on 14 Mar 1964 and served with the airline as such until withdrawn from use on 25 Jul 1975. The aircraft was then donated to the Institut Aéronautique Amaury de la Grange that same month for instructional use. The instructional use had ceased by the mid 1980s, and in about 1987 the aircraft was restored in full Air Inter colours and moved the the institute's entrance to serve as a gate guard, as seen here.
This Caravelle (ex Sterling OY-SAG) served with Air Inter since January 1982. It was withdrawn from use in the early 1990s and donated to the Institut Aéronautique Amaury de la Grange on 26 May 1993, for instructional use. It was still there by mid 2017.
This Noratlas was taken on charge on 23 Nov 1956 and struck off charge on 20 Aug 1987. The next day it was flown to Merville, on delivery to the Institut Aéronautique Amaury de la Grange for instructional use. It was still there by mid 2017. The remnants of one of the aircraft's previous codes, 63-VL (carried from 1 Dec 1978 until 2 Feb 1982 while serving with ET 1/63), are still vaguely visible on the tail boom.
I was pleasantly surprised and very grateful to be given permisson to see this instructional airframe at the Institut Aéronautique Amaury de la Grange. The seats have been removed to allow easier access for instruction of the students
