Based round the earlier Bernard 18 the 190 was developed not only as an airliner, but as a record breaking plane. The French were desperate to fly the Northern Atlantic and whilst the first attempt by Louis Corduret was unsuccessful when the plane refused to leave the runway in Paris, the second attempt in the bright yellow "Oiseau Canari" (Canary Bird) from Old Orchard Beech Maine was a success. The crew of three plus one stowaway took off on 13th June 1929 and landed in Comillas Cantabria Spain 29 hours 52 minutes later. The "Oiseau Canari" can be found in the Musee de l'Air et de l'Espace. About 15 Bernard 190's were built.
