Hehe, only sold to Air Liberté if IIRC.ChuckAnderson said:Hi Everyone!
I just thought that you might like to see a 3-view of the Dassault Mercure.
I think you've missed out some bits of "juggling" Alertken......alertken said:http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1978/1978%20-%200847.html
The outcomes of all that juggling, 1974-78, were:
- France stopped pouring civil money into Dassault to compete with Sud;
- UK rejoined Airbus Industrie which, slowly, became a real business, not a branch of 3 Nations' welfare systems;
- RR won its second US baseline (535 on 757);
- SNECMA became a civil power powerhouse (CFM56 and enhanced CF6s);
- A310 and A320 proceeded as real tripartite programmes, A320 selling at levels unprecedented in Europe;
- Italy built great chunks of MDC and Boeing craft;
- 737/CFM56, 757 and 767 took most of those market sectors.
Eventually, and near-unprecedented, some of these programmes actually delivered profit to their participants.
Thank you Toura, I have visited that Mercure stored at Orly. It has a noticeably wider passenger cabin than a Boeing 737/727/757.toura said:INSIDE THE PLANE
I'm having a Mercure moment, thank you Toura ;D......toura said:How are you Caraavellarella.
You're welcome Toura ;D. Here is another article in French about the Avions Marcel Dassault Mercure short-range jet airliner; it features many pictures of the full-scale mock-up (la Maquette-grandeur)......toura said:Hi Caravellarella
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
This is VERY interesting !
Crap, I think I know that place - and that Mirage wing ! It is my beloved CAEA (see my signature), looks like René Lemaire models. Next door is the library - where I volunteer ;DCaravellarella said:Dear Boys and Girls, here some pictures of a large cutaway model of the Avions Marcel Dassault-Bréguet Aviation Mercure 200-1 "project". I don't know where the pictures originate (the internet?), but I think the model is displayed at a museum in Bordeaux (Mérignac?)......
