The Breguet 390T, 392T and 393T were a family of French propeller-driven airliners of the mid-1930s.

Development

The Breguet 390T family were large three-engine sesquiplanes of all-metal construction with fixed, tailwheel undercarriage.

Operational history

The newly-constituted Air France operated six 393Ts, plus the sole 392T prototype that it purchased from Breguet to use as a cargo plane. The aircraft were originally deployed on the Toulouse-Casablanca route and later on the Natal-Buenos Aires route. Towards the end of their careers, all remaining 393Ts were recalled to Paris and used on short routes between Paris and nearby European destinations.
