Amiot 150 BE

07/17/2005. Remarks by Johan Visschedijk: "The sole Amiot 150 BE (Bombardement-Exploration) was a scout-torpedo-bomber derived from the Amiot 143. The fuselage, tail assembly and engines remained unchanged, the wing was redesigned and enlarged by 10 per cent, and the landing gear was interchangeable wheels and floats.

After the first flight from Cherbourg on September 18, 1937, the tail assembly was redesigned and fitted with twin fins and rudders as shown in the picture. After a heavy landing on June 3, 1939 the aircraft was declared beyond repair."
