Photo Comment

This Alcyon was built in 1958 and was delivered to the French AF as 154. In Jun-1966 it became civil as F-BNEI. This registration was cancelled in Feb-1996. The Musée Régional de l'Air salvaged the wreck in 1999 and started to restore the aircraft with the help of parts from other aircraft. It was registered as F-BXJR in Jan-2008 and on 08-Mar that year it made its first flight after restoration. The museum was later renamed Espace Air Passion.
