    BROUSSARD Meet (Air-Air)

    A first photographic flight has been organized for me on October 13th 2007 with the Broussard nr240 F-BNDD in its old civilian marks
    - See :
    http://www.240.mh-1521.fr/index.php?part=6

    To celebrate its new military scheme (wings will be painted later) a BroussardMeet has been organized at Pouilly en Auxois (F) on August 10th 2008.
    Passenger on board of Broussard nr 106 F-GKJT, I took pictures of the 2 others Max Holste MH1521 flying in patrol with us.

    Thanks to Nicolas, Jean-Michel, Mathieu, Alexandre and all those taking part to this first BroussardMeet

    Lucky,jammy git. I'm not jealous really. Looks like the weather was kind and helped you get the most out of the flight, lovely photos of something I guess will stay in your memory for years to come.

        Very nice photos of an interesting aircraft type, just a pity France decided to re-invent the wheel. I mean why go to the trouble of designing and building your own when someone already builds a machine to do the same job? Silly me, I forgot the 'Not Made Here' syndrome. Something the British suffer from far too often but at least we had the sense to by the Beaver as I hate to think what would have happened if we'd tried to design and build our own equivalent. The army would probably still be waiting now for it to be cleared for service.

          Great photos there and not wanting to argue with a Frenchman, but is that a Renault 4 in photo 5?

            Good point, looks more like a Fiat to me.

              Yes it is a Renault 4cv, as noted above photo 5. Your link describe the type 4L

                The original Renault 4 not the box on wheels most of us are familiar with.

                    Very pretty. Quite a long production run too.

                          Superb photos indeed of quite a rare aeroplane these days.

                          Today have spent two hours in No.208 as it was taken to Yeovilton for the RNHF Charity Flying Day.

                                Just a quick question for you araman. How come they have not all migrated to the F-AZ series of registrations like all the other historic warbirds in France? Not picking fault with that, just curious.

                                  I think owners prefer the CNRA registration to flight with pax because of Alpha Zoulou restriction.

                                  Thanks to "Dean F" and "ANGPHO" for the above pics.
                                  We look for such pics for the website :

                                    Hi

                                    i'm Nicolas, co-organisator of this "Broussard meet"
                                    webmaster and co-creator of the websites mh-1521.fr
                                    specialy in charge of the photographers and video

                                    Broussards in france are in CDNR, not CNRA
                                    CDNR for "orphans", the constructor of this airplane : Max Holste don't exist anymore
                                    but there are others cases, where the constructor exist but have stop the follow up of the certificat of navigability

                                    so for this case, in France, we have the CDNR

                                    ...

                                    for ANGPHO and Dean : can i add your photos to our website http://www.mh-1521.fr ?

                                    and specialy ANGPHO : can you tell me more about your photo ?
                                    where, when ?

                                    and if someone have more infos about this airplane, it could be great

                                    thanks

                                    Edit : correction of the mistake, all Broussard are in CDNR and not CNRAC

                                      Thanks for the update and welcome to the Forum, ncore.

                                      The truck is a UK truck and probably in the UK at the time of the photo.

                                      The rest of the aircraft F-BMAC (?) are certainly in the second truck.

                                        thanks

                                        in fact, i know this Broussard

                                        it's the n19 F-BMJO owned by the museum MAPICA at La Baule in France
                                        The MAPICA sold the BMJO in 2001 to Great Britain because too expensive to fly
                                        the F-BMJO become G-CBGL

                                        but never seen on the net since this date
                                        the MAPICA said to me that the new owner had difficulties
                                        in fact, mecanics et flying a broussard is a little more difficult that a Cessna 172...

                                        so, when i saw the photo of the n19 dismantled on a truck, i can imagine that the new english owner have decided to sell his broussard
                                        but who ?

                                        regarding the CAA database :
                                        the actual owner is
                                        ALISTAIR IAN MILNE
                                        TRUSTEE OF:
                                        BROUSSARD FLYING GROUP
                                        64 GREENGATE
                                        SWANTON MORLEY

                                        NR20 4LX

                                        i can send a "snail mail" but if some is close to...

                                        thanks a lot
