Stargazer2006 said:And after the Wibault-Boccacio, now a Borel-Boccacio... Never heard that name before! Perhaps the engineer/designer who worked on both airplanes?
The aircraft was also named Borel-Odier B.O. 2.Stargazer2006 said:Here is a Borel-Odier twin-engine seaplane. Another type that is totally unknown to me, though Borel is probably the same as in the Borel-Boccacio.
That should read Boccaccio not Boccacio. Paul Boccaccio trained with Michel Wibault in 1917 but had already been working on aircraft designs.Stargazer2006 said:After the Wibault-Boccacio, now a Borel-Boccacio...

I believe this should read "étagés", as in "placed one above the other." As for "accouplés", it can mean "coupled", "paired" or "connected." I'm suggesting this translation:"Ces deux avions ont été établis par M. Paul Boccaccio, ancien élève de l'Ecole supérieure des Mines, qui avait étudié dès 1916 un avion de bombardement muni de deux moteurs Hispano étages et accouplés. Actuellement il étudie un biplace de chasse entièrement métallique muni d'un turbo-compresseur."
the Borel or SCIM designed in 1922 a transport triplane project,but I haven't
no more Info about it ?.
The Borel Postal Transport flying boat Project of 1924/25.hesham said:Hi,
who can ID this Borel flying boat ?,and was it a project ?.
That's right Ermeio.ermeio said:Borel was one of the very early aircraft designer
Some Borel Hydros were racing in the first contests and Italy operated some of them during the first world war
Here is the translating of the text,but I don't know if it was an aircraft,flying bomb or what,who can help? ;
