Latécoère 28-3: Among Titans.

Latécoère 28-3: Among Titans.

One of the truly iconic aircraft of French aviation, the Latécoère 28 was a long-range mail and passenger aircraft used by the almost mythological Aéropostale in its historic routes -specially in the South Atlantic- during the 1930s.
This incredible ad shows the most famous of them, the Laté 28.3 floatplane  “Comte-de-La Vaulx” in which Jean Mermoz made the first mail service across the South Atlantic on May, 1930.
