SNECMA Atar Volant - Improvements, Alterations and Later Models

Improvements, Alterations and Later Models

There were at least four Atar Volant models constructed, each improving or making alterations on the last: the first (C.400 P.1), C.400 P.2, C.400 P.3. and the last, the C.450-01. The second in the series had much success at an international air display in Le Bourget, in Paris, and the third became a full-scale coleopter in its own right, due to numerous improvements and alterations made to the model. The C.450-01 model's maiden flight took place in May 1959. Two months later, while being put through its paces, the single prototype crashed. The pilot was seriously injured, and the prototype wrecked, resulting in the abandoning of its development and the project.

Famous quotes containing the words models and/or alterations:

    Friends broaden our horizons. They serve as new models with whom we can identify. They allow us to be ourselves—and accept us that way. They enhance our self-esteem because they think we’re okay, because we matter to them. And because they matter to us—for various reasons, at various levels of intensity—they enrich the quality of our emotional life.
    Judith Viorst (20th century)

    I put the gold star up in the front window
    beside the flag. Alterations is what I know
    and what I did: hems, gussets and seams.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
