Abstract

IT was in 1947 that we first had the privilege of seeing the SE‐2010 Armagnac under construction and we were then greatly impressed by the courage and determination of all concerned, who were embarking on the ambitious project of building a production series of 70‐ton air liners before testing a prototype. Since our previous article—which dealt in some detail with the whole of the manufacturing methods being employed at Toulouse, Marseilles and Paris, where, because of accommodation difficulties, the various components were being built—the work has gone steadily ahead until a production line exists for the first fifteen airframes.
