From Trait d'Union #147 (Jan-Feb 1993):
Jean Biche worked for Georges Levy since 1915. Then he worked for Levasseur, then for "Schneider et Villiers". Then in 1930 he proposed twin-boom designs in 1930. In 1931, he worked for Hanriot and in 1937 he worked on Romano aircraft.

And most famous one - Hanriot-Biche 110C1 twin-boom single-engine fighter

Check the PDF on this page!
Some good photos, drawings and details.


Interesting, could it be the starting point for P-38 design? 8-) ;D
