The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

Le Paradis des pilotes perdus movie poster.

Movie (1949)
USA title : The Hell of Lost Pilots

Henri Vidal (Capitaine Bertrand)
Michel Auclair (Léonard François)
Andrée Debar (Mme Clément)
Robert Dalban (Dumont, radio)

A Junkers Ju 52 must landed nowhere in the middle of the Sahara. The radio is out and the twelve passengers must wait the rescue team ... or fear their destiny. Their real personalities are emerging as the time flies. Fifteen years before the Flight of the Phoenix, the story is already fascinating with a real set : in 1949, such flights occured two times a week and took several days to reach Dakar.

A.A.C. 1 Toucan

Even if an advertising in 1949 used the 'Junkers 52' name, it was really a post war production with the changes made by the French design bureau Ateliers Aéronautiques de Colombes (thick tyres for example).
A.A.C. 1 Toucan s/n 125.
