Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Potez 661 was a four-engined metal low-wing monoplane airliner developed in France just before World War II. The single example flew with Air Afrique on French colonial routes. In 1936 the well-established Potez company became part of the Soci t Nationale de Constructions A ronautique du Nord (S.N.C.A.N.), under the Law for the Nationalisation of Military Industries. In 1937 they produced their first four-engined aircraft, the Type 661. This was a commercial machine with seating for up to twelve passengers. It was a low wing cantilever, almost all-metal monoplane. The wing tapered with a nearly straight trailing edge that carried outboard balanced ailerons and split trailing edge flaps over the whole of the centre section. The four 220 hp (164 kW) Renault 6-Q inverted inline engines were conventionally mounted of the front wing spar and drove variable-pitch twin-bladed propellers.show more
