Sud-Ouest SO.30P Bretagne

The SO.30 Bretagne twin-engined transport was designed in the early part of World War II, in spite of the difficulties facing the project given the German occupation of France. Indeed, the two prototypes were damaged during Allied bombardment of Cannes. It was resurrected once peace had been restored. In its definitive form, the SO.30P, the aircraft first flew on 11 December 1947. The subsequent production run totalled 45 examples, four of which were used for a time by Air France. Eight SO.30Ps served with Air Algerie and 12 with Air Maroc. Some were bought by charter companies, continuing in service for a number of years. Others were operated, sometimes under charter, by units of the French Air Force's Transport Command.
