Photographer's Remark

Not a Magister, but a much rarer Zéphyr. This basically was a Magister fully adapted for operations from aircraft carriers, the most notable differences probably being the sliding canopy hoods and the nose-mounted light. Only 32 of the type were built, and this example was preserved here since 1995. It was dismantled and moved to Orange, France in early or mid 2011 and safely moved inside the restoration hangar there.
