If you are looking for a unique and very rare center piece for your collection this is it
This plane is delicate and probably why they are so rare
This toy airplane would not survive most kids
Air France began flights from Paris to New York in 1946
In 1947 Air France was flying Lockheed Constellations worldwide
Based on this information we believe the aircraft was produced between 1946 to perhaps the late 1940s
