SNCASE Sud Est SE3101


                                    Sud-Est's second rotary wing aircraft was the SE3101, a somewhat more simplified concept
                                    than the twin-rotor SE3000.  This shot is interesting if only for all the Stampes on the ground!
                                    Either an air show of some sort, or perhaps the actual first flight of the SE 3101 on June 15,
                                   1948.   This aircraft was loosely based on another of Heinrich Focke's designs, the Focke Wulf
                                    Fw 61.  I am not sure if either of these preliminary designs had civil or military ID.  In any case,
                                    there wasn't much side area in which to paint anything on the above craft!    The pilot in this shot
                                    was probably Jean Boulet.
