Hi all,
The Wibault 360 family of single-engined aircraft is quite little known, unlike the Wibault 280 with three engines:
- 360, Salmson 9Ab, one built, F-AKCT
- 362, GR 7Kb, two built
- 365, GR 9Kbrs, one built
- 366, HS 12 Ybrs, faired landing gear, one built, F-ANEN, planned for London-Melbourne race but did not participate
- 367, this is the 365 modified with retractable gear
- 368, Clerget 14F2, long distance aircraft with different fuselage

The above description of the 362, 365 and 367 is given in an article by Pierre Cortet in Avions no.92.
But the 365 was announced with Hispano engine in some Flight articles:
http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1933/1933 - 1219.html
http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1934/1934 - 0025.html

Similar pictures of the 360 and 368 appear in several sources.
There is a picture of the 366 in the Flight archive:
http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1934/1934 - 1064.html
I know no picture of the other models, or description of the missing numbers, and would like to know more.
