Holleville RH-1 Bambi

08/31/2012. Remarks by Walter van Tilborg: "René Holleville was designer and builder of this homebuilt aircraft which first on July 27, 1953, powered by a 65hp Continental A65. The RH-1 Bambi was originally intended to be available for amateur construction, but plans to market kits were abandoned.

The sole Bambi remained active for many years and received a 90 hp Continental C90-8F engine in the early-1980s. In October 2001 the aircraft was donated to the GPPA (Groupement pour la Préservation du Patrimoine Aéronautique) which is operating the Musée Régional de l'Air at Angers Loire Aéroport, Marcé near Angers, France."
