          What was the source of that image, Mike? I'd hunted high and low on the web without finding a single image of the Aigle. Even the Druine website offered nothing on this aeroplane. Furthermore despite the Aviafrance website describing it as a low wing monoplane, the suggestion at http://www.retroplane.net/forum/view...r=asc&start=15 that the Aigle was, in fact, a parasol wing monoplane led me to pursue my search elsewhere. I presume that the drawing is not of the RD1 for this is variously described as a biplane. So maybe the drawing was of the RD2 - although some suggest that this and the 777 Aigle were one and the same. If so, perhaps the drawing was of a design that only ever existed on paper. Any takers?

            Good morning and Happy New Year everybody!

            I've found another photo of the Aigle 777 in the book " Les Avions Francais de 1944 a 1964" by Pierre Gaillard. The photo clearly shows both the name/designation on the fin/rudder and the registration F-PFKG on the same plane as depicted in this thread.

            The confusion with the "RD1" may perhaps originate in a wrong interpretation/translation of the text depicted next to the photo in this book: "Constructeur et pilote dix-sept ans, Roger Druine a fait voler, en 1939, son premier appareil, un biplan monoplace quip d'un moteur Poinsard de 25 ch. Son second avion, l'Aigle 777 F-PFKG tait pourvu d'un moteur Train de 40 ch."

            The drawing in avion ancien's source definitely depicts another, third, plane.

            Kind regards,
            Thomas
