Dear Boys and Girls, here is a small piece in French about the Société Anonyme de Construction des Avions Hurel-Dubois HD-109 "project". It combined the fuselage of the Hurel-Dubois HD-130 "project" with a more conventional cantilever low wing of similar area but with a reduced span (to offer better performance) and was a competitor to the SIPA S.272 Présence "project"......

There is a drawing of the Hurel-Dubois HD-109 "project" here;

The Hurel-Dubois HD-130 "project" is here;

The SIPA S.272 Présence "project" is here;
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,12412.msg121737.html#msg121737

The piece comes from the 19th May 1961 issue of Les Ailes......

Again, I don't buy that this is actually a Hurel-Dubois design ! Perhaps it's just a design following the aerodynamic
layout featured by many Hurel-Dubois types and the article is about wings with a high span/chord ration,
not just about Hurel-Dunbois, which of course is one of the best known users of this layout. But for example,
the Miles HDM 106 wasn't a pure HD design, too.
(The caption says something like "transport aircraft of Hurel-Dubois formula", if I trust the online translation)
Please, if such points aren't clear, because of sources in a language not fully understood by the poster, I would
always recommend asking for help with a translations by a member knowledgable in that language, and I remind
to this thread http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,23344.0.html

It's just too easy to create "new types" via a wrong translation, something we should try hard to avoid !
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...
