Caption

We gathered on this shot a bunch of european flying machines scaling from the famous belgium double decker STAMPE SV4 (1920's) to french DR250 (late 50's http://www.pilotfriend.com/aircraft%20performance/Robin/robin.htm ) which lead to a range of wonderful planes with more than 4 500 still flying over Europe due to the very skilled ingeneer Pierre ROBIN.

Also the CAP 10 (60's) from Mudry aviation (http://www.netmarine.net/aero/aeronefs/cap10/photos.htm ) world famous skydancer with its children CAP 231 and 232.

And last but not least the very smart carbon fiber plane : french Dynaero MCR-01 (1997) designed by Pierre ROBIN son Christophe ; 150 knots an hour with 4.5 gallons of unleaded ; who's better ? Much cheaper than cars and so fast... ! (http://www.dynaero.com/lien/indexuk.htm ). All these little snow geese are gently kept in an old fashion rusty shed packed with spareparts dipped in oily dust.

The whole lay on Chavenay airfield, 12 kms westbound Paris.
