A Belgian Pioneer

Post by DH106 »

The world's first pressurised airliner, the Renard R.35. Unfortunately it crashed early in its first flight, fatally for the pilot and the project. The cutaway in an 80s Air international does not show provision for a toilet, so there may have been multiple pressures had it entered service.

Superb achievement, once again
Apart from the number of engines, it seems that the SNAC Belphegor was inspired by its design

No-one can say the SIG just turns out Spitfires and F-16s - The originality you all bring absolutely inspires me, I wonder how many of our members read The Aviation Historian!! - marvellous work !
