F-AOHA  Bloch 220                                                   (c/n  01)


                                  Marcel Bloch's model 220 first flew in December of 1935.  This, the prototype, never did go into
                                  service with Air France, although the airline ordered 16 production models to replace its Potez 62s
                                  and Wibault 282s. In 1936 the French aircraft industry was nationalized and the Bloch enterprise
                                  was incorporated into the Societe Nationale de Constructions Aeronautiques du Sud-Ouest.  The
                                  above image was acquired from SNCASO in 1948.
