RSV 32-90 & variants

 

 

RSV 32-90 R11

 

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 Lorraine

 

RSV 32-110 n° R-13 was powered by a 110 hp Lorraine engine, which was reflected in its designation.
