Aviation Nostalgia Forum | breguet universal air france
I do remember seeing them only a night. never saw the French airforce version at all. but i think hey was identical. except they could be used as troop carriers
the Atlantic is still in service, patrolling the seas for the French Air Force/Navy. Back to the Deux Ponts, it had four radials and was a relatively basic design using late 40s style engineering. There is at least one in preservation. I think the design was similar to the Carvair and Bristol freighter in that the thinking was to carry cars or cargo below and passengers above, although it could be used as a purely passenger plane with a surprising capacity.
i tought there was one still flying but.....
Br.765 Sahara c/n 501, 64-PE of the Armée de l'Air is preserved as a gate guard at Évreux-Fauville Air Base, France.
Br.765 Sahara c/n 504, 64-PH of the Armée de l'Air is under restoration at Ailes Anciennes Toulouse, France.
sorrt that was a joke . Bit like the plane itself more suitable as a french AF freighter/trrop carrier than for civil use . I had the impression they was extremly noisy inside. (ie ideal for a french restaurant)
