France AF Aircraft Not Used

by the French Air Force

This page gives details of some of the aircraft types that were offered or promised to the French Air Force but not delivered, cancelled official orders, and types have been falsely reported as being in service.

1918
The following aircraft types were ordered by the French Air Force in 1918, but had not been delivered by the time of the Armistice in November 1918, when many orders were cancelled:
Sopwith Dolphin Mk II – none delivered.

1940
The following aircraft were ordered by the French Air Force in 1939/40, but had not been delivered by the time of the Armistice in June 1940:
Consolidated LB-30 (B-24 Liberator) – 120 a/c ordered but not delivered in time.
Curtiss H81 A1 Tomahawk – 140 a/c ordered but none delivered by June 1940.
Douglas DB-7A / Havoc II – 200 a/c ordered but none delivered before the surrender. This was a follow-up to the initial order for the DB-7 B3 variant, which WAS delivered.
Northrop (Douglas) A-17 Nomad – 93 ordered, none delivered.
25 Stinson 105s were loaded onto the carrier Bearn in 1940 for AdlA use but France surrended while the ship was en route.

Prototypes
Note: The French Air Force has evaluated a large number of prototypes during its existence, and aircraft that were built with air force funds AND carried air force roundels can be considered French Air Force aircraft. The following aircraft are associated with the air force, but are not believed to have fulfilled this criteria.

National Markings
French Air Force

This section describes and illustrates the various national insignia used by the French Air Force since its formation:




Main MarkingFin Flash

1912-1940
A French national insignia was first introduced by a decree dated 26 July 1912. It consisted of a roundel in the colours of the French Revolution – red, white and blue. This marking was displayed above and below each wing. The fin flash was usually displayed in the form of rudder stripes. The roundel was not carried on the fuselage sides until 1918. No service titles were carried.




Main MarkingFin Flash

1940-1942
Under the Vichy government, French military aircraft had red and yellow horizontal stripes added to the engine cowling and tail unit. The main markings included a thin yellow outline. The roundel was displayed in 6 positions – i.e. above and below each wing, and on each side of the fuselage. The fin flash was usually displayed in the form of rudder stripes. No service titles were carried.




Main MarkingFin Flash

1945-present
After the liberation of France from Nazi control, the Vichy markings were removed. The main markings were unchanged. The roundel is displayed in 6 positions – (i.e. above and below each wing, and on each side of the fuselage) on aircraft – but on the fuselage sides only on helicopters. The fin flash is nowadays rarely carried by frontline types, but on second-line types is usually displayed in the form of rudder stripes.
