Latécoère Late 5

late5

 

The Laté 4 was unstable and on 14 October 1922 the aircraft was caught by a gust and crashed. At this point the civil aircraft was abandoned. In early 1921 a decision had already been made to submit the second Latécoère 4 as a four-man bomber (to BPR 3 spec); it became the Latécoère 5 powered by three 375 hp / 280kW Lorraine 12Da W12 engines.

The Late 5 was unsuccessful.
