Many projects or concepts are very short lived. Often they were
shown as models or mock-ups to an astonished public on airshows,
like Farnborough or Le Bourget, just to be forgotten some time
later. Just as an example, I’ve attached a photo of the SNCAC
800, a very nice looking, fighter like shaped small transport for
four passengers. This photo was shown on the aeroforum last
year. My question : As photo cameras were standard equipment
long before the war, collections of photos from airshows probably
exist and should be a phantastic source for now unknown projects,
if they don’t show only the flying hardware outside the halls .
The only problem, where to find such collections ? Maybe there
even were official photographers, taking photos of every stand
in the halls ? Who knows a site, showing the exhibits of the
Aerosalon Paris all the years ? Were there illustrated catalogues ?
If so, where to get them ??
