Just to remind you,
this section contains US-registered
aircraft. They don't have to be
inclusion. The Rallye series emanated from the original
Morane-Saulnier MS-880A of the
late 1950s era. When Morane-Saulnier collapsed
in the mid 1960s, SOCATA, a Division of Sud
Aviation, took over the MS
Rallye designs. Over 3,000 of various marques of this aircraft
produced by SOCATA. Notable features are the bulbous cockpit and
back position of the tail plane.
The above photo is from owner Charles Miles and was taken at White
Cloud Flying Field, near Columbia, MO in 2014. Its "STOL"
claim on the fin relates to the
ally deployed leading edge
wing slats. My own shot of this machine, below, was taken on a
bright day, was at Nut
Tree Airport Vacaville, CA in
July of 1979.
