The 52 is based on c/ns, which run from 1-53 but with 11 and 50 missing and (strangely) a 3 and an 03. These two are F-CCCZ and F-CCUC, according to the French reg. So c/ns total 52. This register lists 51 French aircraft with their c/ns, though c/n 53 has had two serials and so appears twice (F-CIGL and F-CDGL). c/n 8 is not in this list but appears on the US reg; presumably never registered in France. Not sure what forces French aircraft completely off the reg, rather than just being marked radié.TSRL (talk) 16:51, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
