Bernard racing airplane

This model with peculiar shapes is a research that can be attributed to the aircraft manufacturer Bernard. The similarities with other aircraft leave no doubt as to its origin. There can be found, in fact, some of the characteristics of Bernard C1, but also those of Bernard V1 a racing airplane that established a new speed record in 1924 (average speed of 448.17 km / h).

This Wind tunnel model is difficult to locate in time. It is likely to have been accomplished as part of the research that led to Bernard V1. In this respect, it may be noted that the shape of the landing gear peculiar to Bernard 1 was never adopted for the following aircrafts of this series. With the landing gear of the Bernard V1 being different, it can be inferred that this model is certainly prior to this aircraft.
