Some years ago Jay Stotts was judging my exhibit and mentioned that his mother had a photo of a Latecore at a port on the east coast but he didn't know which one. I wondered many times if it was indeed the 521(before wwII) or maybe later one of the larger 631s after the war. Maybe this answers that question.

This Laté 521 aircraft made a demonstration tour on this side of the Atlantic, a tour for which covers exist. The aircraft ended up at anchor in Pensacola Bay, but a hurricane blew in and caused it to capsize, ending its airborne life.
