ms-560-1


The prototype Morane-Saulnier M.S.560 single-seat low-wing aerobatic monoplane was built in 1946. It had retractable landing gear, a rearward-sliding cockpit canopy and its powerplant, comprising a 56kW Train 6D-01 engine, gave a maximum speed of 235km/h. Three variants followed, namely the M.S.561 and the M.S.563 of 1947 each with a 75kW Mathis G.4 engine, and the M.S.562 with a 75kW Cirrus Minor.

Late in 1946 the M.S.570 prototype was flown, a two-seat tourer-trainer development of the M.S.560. It had a widened forward fuselage, side-by-side seats, and a 104kW Renault 4Pei engine giving a maximum speed of 265km/h. The three-seat M.S.571 followed, powered by a Renault 4P-01 of the same power, the prototype being followed by five more machines. Maximum speed was 240km/h. The M.S.572 was similar to the basic design, but had four seats and a 104kW Potez 4D engine.
