Photo Comment

The Breguet 941 was a 1961 STOL design which raised interest abroad, but only the prototype plus four aircraft for the Armée de l'Air were built. The type went on sales tours in the USA as the McDonnell 188 in June 1964, and again as the McDonnell Douglas 188 from June 1968 until June 1969. All four aircraft were withdrawn from use in 1974.
The third production aircraft is seen here at the Parc Avenue theme park, still under reconstruction at the time. The park was formerly known as Aerocity, which closed in 2002. It reopened as Parc Avenue in 2010, only to close again in December 2014. This aircraft then moved on to the Ailes Anciennes collection at Toulouse-Blagnac.
