In this action comedy the French boxer Jo Cavalier is charmed on the train to Berlin for the Olympics.
Canadian aircraft Noorduyn Norseman produced from 1935 to 1959. UC-64A is a an ex-USAAF version of the Norseman Mk.IV. Possibly registered under LN-TSN at the time of the movie.
Spanish built version of the Bücker Bü-131 Jungmann produced since 1935. Around 5000 built.
In the foreground is another CASA 1131, but in the background is a swiss Pilatus P-2-05.
Launched as Stearman Aircraft company in the early 30’s, then Boeing Stearman since 1934 when the company merged to Boeing. In the left background is a Morane Saulnier MS-500 Criquet, French variant of the Fieseler Fi-156 Storch.
Replica built from a Stampe SV4, in an unbelievable “Armée de L’Air” livery as French Air Force never operated this plane. Used by ace of aces Jo Cavalier (J.P.Belmondo), in air-fights with the Fokkers. The scoreboard is another crazy idea : during World War One, such count was never applied on aircraft but sometimes on a wooden stick.
Same aircraft ( F-AZCN) in other movies at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
Not the Fokker-Platz V17e but what remains of the Fokker DrI once the dogfight ended. (replica built from a Stampe SV-4).
