Taon

Her petite frame, unusual intakes and staggered muzzles!

I love you Breguet Taon.

The aircraft, designed for a NATO competition for a light tactical fighter, even set an international speed record. For the 1,000 km (620 mi) closed circuit, it achieved a speed of 1,046.65 km/h (650.36 mph) at 7,620 m (25,000 ft) on 25 April 1958. On 23 July it broke its own record, this time achieving 1,075 km/h (667.98 mph).

Despite its speed and cute looks the type was not ordered into production.

Est-ce que ton père a été un voleur ? Parce qu’il a volé les étoiles du ciel pour les mettre dans tes yeux.
