Remark
Photographer
01 (cn 01) Built as a Leduc 016, this aircraft first flew on February 8th, 1951. Converted back to Leduc 0.10 standards due to problems caused by the turbojets that were fitted on the wingtips. Preserved at the Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace.

Untitled
Leduc 010
Paris - Le Bourget (LBG / LFPB)
France, January 10, 2009
Remark
Photographer
01 (cn 01) A piloted ramjet, first flown in powered flight on April 21st 1949. As a ramjet needs forward speed to operate, it was carried aloft by a Sud-Est Languedoc mothership and released at altitude. In flight testing, it reached speeds as high as M=.85. On display in the Musee de l'Air et de l'Espace. Of the two names on the aircraft, Rene Lorin was the inventor of the ramjet and Jean Villey published the detailed theory of the ramjet.

Untitled
Leduc 010
Paris - Le Bourget (LBG / LFPB)
France, June 20, 2007
Remark
Photographer
01 (cn 01) This aircraft was a ramjet, first launched from a Languedoc transport aircraft in powered flight on 21st April 1949. It demonstrated a phenomenal rate of climb and was tested until 1953. There appears to be no forward vision and they must have been incredibly difficult to land. The Leduc 016 was developed with wingtip mounted engines but it was unstable and tests were quickly discontinued. In total three of these types were built with two being destroyed in non-fatal accidents

Untitled
Leduc 010
Paris - Le Bourget (LBG / LFPB)
France, December 28, 2005
Remark
Photographer
01 (cn 01) The amazing creation of Rene Leduc, who sucessfully demonstrated his obsession with the ramjet engine concept. The Leduc 010 was released at altitude from a four-engined Sud SE-161 Languedoc transport aircraft (a section of which is retained here). After release the pilot would fire up the ramjet and the aircraft flew. This aircraft flew a test program until retirement in 1953. The pilots were VERY brave.
