Plane is painted overall in beige tone; this is not clear doped linen. All metal fittings painted mid gray. All wood booms and struts with light fabric tapes. Note strange thick spar in wings and laced breaks in wing surfaces. Ribs very pronounced, on both top and bottom surfaces, perhaps 2-3 cm from surface. Undercarriage of steel, painted gray. Note Éclair propeller logo.
One general look, another showing some of the rigging detail and a look into the cockpit. Note the difference in seating comfort.
Vicente think that the aircraft may be a reproduction.
Knut Erik Hagen took these photos in May 2004.
The photos were taken at the Royal Army and Military History Museum (Musée Royal de l'Armée et d'Histoire Militaire / Koninklijk Museum van het Leger en de Krijgsgeschiedenis) in Brussels , Belgium.
The subject is serial C.2531 in French markings.
Mike adds: Like the Soesterburg museum in NL, this is another museum that lets you get pretty close to the airplanes without much trouble.
