Photographer's Remark

This Noratlas was taken on charge on 22 Dec 1954 and struck off charge on 4 May 1984. It went to the Musée de l'Aéronautique de Nancy in that same year, and from here on its history matches that of sistership N° 97 at the same museum. The museum and its collection sustained severe damage during a storm in Dec 1999 and was forced to close in 2000. Both N° 54 and N° 97 remained in the closed museum until at least Sep 2003, but by Aug 2004 the pair had moved to the Musée de l'Epopée et de l'Industrie Aéronautique in Albert.
