De Havilland DH104 Dove & Piper J-3 Cub

Jérôme Napoléon Antoine is landing the Jodel at Deauville Airport and we have a glimpse on a far away De Havilland DH104 (right). Please note that the engine and the wheel are those of a Piper Cub, not from a low wing Jodel.

Behind the Jodel, probably the Piper Cub used to film the landing.

Guerchais Roche T-39/II

Another interesting glimpse: we just see this fuselage and BSU code on the right wing.
Three French airplane were registered like this: a SOCATA Rallye (not yet in production), a glider and the rare Guerchais Roche T-39/II (the Guerchais-Roche T.35 and T.39 was a small family of two, three and four seat French-built touring monoplanes of the mid 1940s. Only fifteen airframes have been built at a time all was ashes in France).
Reg. F-BBSU was the second and last T-39/II (a four seat powered by a 175 h.p. Salmson 9 ND nine-cylinder radial). Tail and registration code were painted in red.
