African Condor

[SIZE=4]Constelación "African Condor", Serie-410 Utility Aircraft[/SIZE]
The Serie-410 "African Condor" is a modified version of the Serie-400 Twin Condor developed for the French Institut Géographique National. The African Condor features elongated wings for better lift and low-speed stability during aerial photography, and French radial engines (either Clerget 14F diesels or Gnome-Rhône 14Ms). Passenger capacity compared to the Serie-400 is reduced by three seats to increase the range slightly and provide for the installation of an aerial survey camera.
