First flight of the Sud-Est S.E.3101

Tuesday, June 15, 1948 - Villacoublay airfield, France



The aircraft was piloted by Jean Boulet, then a recently graduated test pilot, as the Chief Test Pilot was too heavy for the aircraft to get off the ground. Boulet would go on to become one of France's most famous rotorcraft test pilots.
