|RSV 32-90 & variants|
The RSV 32 series of aircraft was the first successful totally Belgian design from the Renard, Stampe and Vertongen-team.
41 RSV were delivered to the Aéronautique Militaire between 1923 and 1933 and according to the powerplant used, the designation changed;
RSV 32-90 (Anzani 90hp), RSV 32-100 (Renard 100hp), RSV 32-110 (Lorraine 110hp), RSV 32-120 (Gipsy 120hp or Renard 120hp).
N° R 11 depicted on the above photograph is an RSV 32-90 operated by the flying school at Wevelgem.

An unexpected field landing stopped by a fence for R-9 of the 3rd observation squadron. (This was most probably the "squadron-hack" for this Breguet XIX equipped unit)

RSV 32-110 n° R-13 was powered by a 110 hp Lorraine engine, which was reflected in its designation.
This particular machine was used by 1/I/3Aé proudly wearing the squadron's Dragon badge.
