Morane-Saulnier AR / MS.35

First flown in 1915, the AR was a two-seat parasol-wing monoplane constructed largely of wood with fabric covering. About 400 were built after World War I (when it was known as the MS.35), mainly as intermediate trainers in three principal versions: MS.35R with a 59.6kW Le Rhone 9c rotary engine; MS.35A with an Anzani engine; and MS.35C with a Clerget 9B engine. The MS.35EP2 served with French Aeronautique Militaire 'Ecoles de Pilotage' up to 1929. Other military users were Poland (60), Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Guatemala, Romania, Soviet Union (30) and Turkey. A number also went to civil users.

Between 1926-1928, Romania built, under licence, 30 planes at I.A.R. Factory

Such a pretty plane(at least I think so) that I have decided to build a flying scale model of it.

Mexico also used this type of airplane in 1923.

I am working for Q2A, company that makes children's books for publishers in the UK and US. We are currently working on a book on first world war and need images of Morane Sauliner used in first world war.However, we are having trouble sourcing photographs of the same.We would like to ask your permission and know if you could give us a high-res photograph of the same.
