Title: Breguet 763 Deux-Ponts

The design of the Breguet 761, as it was originally designated, started in 1944 and it first flew in 1949 powered by Gnome-Rhone 14R engines. Three pre-production 761S variants were subsequently build using R2800 engines. Air France ordered twelve new variants, designated 763, which featured strengthened wings of increased span, a re-configured cockpit and more powerful engines. These were operated as passenger aircraft seating up to 135 passengers in a high-density layout.

In 1964 Air France transfered six aircraft to the French Armee de l’Air who operated these along with the original three 761S aircraft, plus four new-build 765 versions until their retirement in 1972. Air France operated the remaining six 763 aircraft as freighters until 1971.
