Fouga Magister, Dassault Super Mystère B2, Alouette 2 helicopter & Nord 262 inside one of Istres CEV hangars

One of the hangars of the Istres Flight Test Center with types introduced since many years but always used either to verify and test airframe changes, system improvements and any kind of new materials having to equip future new design in all categories of aircraft, or to learn the flight testing and reception job to EPNER's pupils. Here from right to left: a Fouga Magister, a Dassault Super Mystère B2, an Alouette 2 helicopter, a Nord 262 possibly first prototype and the aft section of a second SMB 2.
