Laté 300 Croix du sud Sweatshirt - Latécoère


Relive the historic record of the Laté 300 by wearing this mythical sweater in memory of the seaplane built by the Société Industrielle D'Aviation Latécoère (SIDAL). Entered into service in 1932, the aircraft beat the world record for straight-line flight by making a round-trip flight from France to South America. Named "Croix du Sud", the seaplane criss-crossed the oceans and opened the way to transatlantic flights.

On December 31, 1933, the F-AKGF took off from the Etang de Berre to reach Saint-Louis in Senegal. The seaplane with a wingspan of about 45 meters won the bet: after 23 hours and 3 minutes of flight, the crew landed on the Senegal River. The line shines when the aircraft reaches Natal a few days later before starting a series of flights in South America. On February 8, 1934, the Laté 300 was welcomed like a star by General Denain when its floats touched the water of Les Mureaux (France).

Made in the original livery of the seaplane built in 1932, this limited-edition sweater will give you wings in all circumstances.
