This Deux-Ponts (double decker) was delivered to Air France in Jul 1953 as F-BASS, and transferred to the Armée de l'Air in June 1964 as 306/82-PP. Withdrawn from use in Aug 1967 and stored at Le Bourget. In 1968 the aircraft was acquired by Jean-Claude Savigny (on behalf of the Aéro-club Etienne-Boileau), dismantled at Le Bourget and trucked to Fontenay-Trésigny. In 1984 the aeroclub changed its name to Aéro-club de Chaubuisson, and in that same year they converted their Deux-Ponts into a bar/restaurant. The fictitious registration F-BACC was then chosen to show the initials of the aeroclub's new name.
My prediction that this 'Deux-Ponts' (Double-Decker) would soon be starring as the 'Father of the A380' in the new Aeroscopia museum did not come true, and she remained in the outside Ailes Anciennes collection nearby.
Used by Air France from August 1952 until 1965 as a twin deck passeger aircraft, often referred to as the "Deux-Ponts" (Double-decker). Mainly served the high density Orly-Algeria routes. Converted to Universel freighter in 1965. To Salis Aviation in June 1970.
