Potez 63.11 rebuild





 ..it flies ..or almost !
A Potez 63.11 rebuild in the US made its first hop earlier this summer. Financed entirely by French pilot Jean-Marie Garric who lives in the US, this rebuild has been constructed from original factory plans. The aircraft is powered by modern and reliable 
P&W engines rather than period GN engines...
Jean-Marie has painted his machine in the colours of n°641 of GAO 515 (aerial observation group) which was adorned with a distinctive 'Grumpy' dwarf on its nose in a fine tribute to the men and aircraft of the groupes aériens d'observation.
