Bernard H.V.42 Racing Seaplane

Built to compete in the 1931 Schneider Trophy the Bernard H.V.42 was a racing seaplane designed by   Société des Avions Bernard which unfortunately never raced due to engine trouble. This handed outright victory to the English Supermarine S6B as the Italian team was not ready in time, bring to an end one of the greatest mechanical competitions of modern times.

Thank you to the always excellent LE CONTAINER for the reminder about this amazing machine.
