The attached pictures are showing two models which are said to be owned
by the MAE Le Bourget. They are Gyropteres, not helicopters, as explicitly is
said, although I think, this designation was used for several different types
of rotary wing aircraft. As inventors Louis Breguet, Marcel Vullierme (working
from 1927 to 1967 for Breguet) and Maurice Chartier are mentioned.
The G.130 is described as a 40-passenger aircraft, the G.161 as a water-bomber
with a load of 35.000 litres of water.
As I could find neither of these types in the Cuny book, I'm hoping, that someone
of you have more informations about them.
