Nord 1402 Gerfaut / 1405 Gerfaut II

The Gerfaut II was a development of the Gerfaut 1A, which was the first high-powered jet delta-wing aircraft to fly in France (15 January 1954), powered by a 43.15kN SNECMA Atar 101G turbojet with afterburner. The Gerfaut II first flew on 17 April 1956 and on 16 February 1957 established a number of time-to-height records from a standing start, including a climb to a height of 6,000m in 1 minute 17 seconds and to 9,000m in 1 minute 34 seconds. The Gerfauts were used to collect data for a high-speed fighter design.
