ANF-Mureaux 115, 117

Developed from 1928 onwards, originally under the designation R.2, the Mureaux series of observation aircraft constituted the main equipment of the French Army's Groupes Aeriens d'Observation (GAO) in September 1939. The principal variants were the 115 and 117, built between 1936 and 1939. It was a Mureaux 115 of GAO 553 which, on 8 September 1939, had the dubious distinction of being the first aircraft to be destroyed by the Luftwaffe. During the 'Phoney War' period the Mureaux were progressively replaced by the Potez 63.11, but 110 were still in service at the time of the German invasion of 10 May 1940. A few were used as makeshift night fighters.
