Breguet's 1919-1939 Aircraft ID Challenge #32

Breguet's 1919-1939 Aircraft ID Challenge #32

It is 07:28 AM here so there may be plenty of time in this region to identify this machine, although NZ and Australia will have a disadvantage. The new year may be already close there

All the best in 2011

Kees

Breguet's 1919-1939 Aircraft ID Challenge

The Rules

The thread title must be "Breguet's 1919 - 1939 Aircraft ID Challenge #......" AND must be placed in the Non-WWI Aviation sub-Forum.
The score board, link and rules must be copied to the beginning of each thread, so that we know where we are. The score board and the correct answer to the challenge must also be placed at end of each thread.
The completed aircraft must have been either; designed, built or have left the ground during the '1919-1939 period and be identifiable by the poster.
The photo must show the whole aircraft - from whatever angle, or at least 2 views of a 3 view drawing (photo by preference).
Challenges which depict a machine already earlier presented are disqualified (always check the list at Aeroplanes 1919 - 1939* -* Breguet's -Aircraft Challenge* -- when in doubt !).
If there is any doubt as to the eligibility of an aircraft for the challenge details should be PM'd to Breguet BEFORE the aircraft is submitted.
Once someone has gotten 5 correct answers under their belt they become an ACE. Once they become an ACE they must wait 12hrs after the posting of the new challenge before they can post an answer.
To be eligible for correct ID an answer must include at least one characteristic of the aircraft that helped in its identification.
The first person to ID the challenge correctly gets to post the next challenge. If this can not be done for any reason Breguet himself will post the next challenge.
If an ace gives the correct answer too early, the challenge is over, he gets no point but has to post the next one. In lieu of the fact that the "novices" have in effect been "cheated" of their "exclusive" time that next post should be a relatively easy one. Anyone repeating the correct answer at the right time gets neither a point nor the right to post the next challenge.
The final arbiter in relation to questions about the rules is BREGUET

The machine dates from just after the war, about 1919 / 1920.

This would appear to be a photo of the French Damblanc – Lacoin “Alerion” helicopter.

Louis Damblanc had quite a carrier. I know nothing of Lacoin.

Here is another view. Note the similarities in undercarriage, rotors, fuselage and ground personnel.

The origins of the Alérion date back to 1915 when French patent No. 502.250 was issued to Louis Lacoin and several others. Later the engineer Louis Damblanc came in and he realized this helicopter design in 1920. The pictures (a whole series) show the tests done at Villacoublay in September 1920. The machine left the ground but crashed when the rotor construction collapsed. Experiments were not proceeded with.

Louis Damblanc continued as a rocket scientist.
