The Ju 252 had nothing in common with the Ju 52 except its trimotor configuration. It is actually similar to the Curtiss Commando, having been designed to carry 35 passengers in a pressurized cabin. As a military transport it got a rear loading ramp which could tilt the aircraft floor level with the ground. The type's first flight occurred on 5 June 1942 according to German sources. Only 15 Ju 252s were built while the design was reworked as the Ju 352, built largely of non-strategic materials with lesser engines.

The Potez 63 in its basic form was a three-seat fighter, crewed by a pilot, a gunner and a commander who was supposed to direct formations of single-seat fighters. The initial Potez 630 version suffered from unreliable Hispano-Suiza 14Ab engines and was relegated to training duties.

Visitors to the Musée de l'Air may recognize this helicopter but here it is in its original form. Underpowered, the same prototype was re-engined and at the same time enlarged, and designated G.111. According to aviastar.org, the designations were G.IIE and G.III. First flight of the G.11E occurred on 9 December 1948 according to the Musée de l'Air, but on 21 May 1949 going by other sources.

New aircraft put on display on a square in Vincennes, Paris. Registered to André Joly, the secretary of a committee which intended to make a flight to Vincennes, Indiana, by 1935, with a boat crossing from Dakar to Natal. It probably never happened. The building is at 2, Rue de Condé-sur-Noireau. Now named for WWII general Leclerc, the square was then the Place de la Tourelle.

Note the large tailplane, actually a second wing. The tandem-wing Taupin was built in some numbers by the Société Française de Construction Aéronautique (SFCA). The company was based here at Buc, a historic airfield adjacent to Toussus-le-Noble (LFPN). Louis Blériot established his ambitious Aeropark here in 1909. The grand building was the student pilots' hotel, known as the Hôtel Blériot and in use at this time with the Groupe Aérien du Touring Club de France.

One of several French six-engined transatlantic flying boat designs, the Lioré et Olivier H-49 was built as the SE.200 Amphitrite, named for the wife of Poseidon. The first prototype made its maiden flight on 11 December 1942. Taken by the Germans, it was sunk by RAF Mosquitos at Lake Constance in April 1944. A USAAF raid destroyed or damaged four more airframes under construction at Marignane. No 03 was completed and flown after the war. It was written off after a hard landing at the Étang de Berre in October 1949. It is seen here in the old port of Marseille with the Église Saint-Ferréol les Augustins.

Frits Koolhoven's FK.34 thinking it's a submarine. This was a seaplane conversion of an FK.31, possibly H-NACF (c/n 211). A second demonstration ended similarly with a leaking float and the Dutch navy lost its interest. Photo from: Johannes Kaauw / Pabo collection

'Practising for RAF Empire Day pageant near RAF Martlesham Heath,' but the year is not clear. The Valentia transport, an updated Victoria, did not fly until 1934. K3603 crashed in Lincolnshire in 1941. The other aircraft is said to be S1715, a Vildebeest which was converted as a Vincent and wears a night bomber paint job.
