Hi All.
I have today picked up a copy of Issue 5 (Aout/Septembre 2005) of Aviation Francais Magazine (AFM) which, amongst others, contains articles on the Bloch 151/152 and one page by Philippe Ricco on the SNCAC NC-110 bomber project of 1936.

Two questions please.
1. Why did the magazine close down?
2. Did any of the other issues cover unbuilt French fighter or bomber projects? I did look quickly at issues 8, 11, 12 and 13 (all at Midland Counties at Hinckley) and they appear not to have had any.

Many thanks. Tony Buttler

When the magazine ceased publication , the publishers informed their
subscribers that they soon should come back with a new magazine
who was to provide a more international contents instead of pure French
aviation subjects.
Until now , nothing has coming up...

There are French bomber (and a few fighter) projects in the following issues
Nr.3-5-6-11 and 14.

Most of the magazine issues are available in the U.K.
at the Aviationbookcentre. They give an excellent service.
