Dewoitine Airplane Photos
Here you can see the collection of Dewoitine Airplane Photos.
A Frenchman named Emile Dewoitine was the designer and manufacturer of approximately 90 different aircraft.
The Dewoitine D520 (pictured below) was France's best fighter aircraft during The Battle of France in 1940.
All of the earlier built Dewoitine airplanes were purpose built as fighter aircraft.
Three of Dewoitine's aircraft were built for commercial use. The D332 which crashed in a snow storm on it's return test flight from Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh city, China). The D333 was the improved result of the D332. Three aircraft were ordered by Air France.
The D338 was the third commercial aircraft. This could carry 22 passengers. There were 30 of these aircraft ever built.
