The French association Replic’Air recently finished the construction of a Morane-Saulnier Type G replica, which will be used to cross the Mediterranean sea on September 22, to commemorate the first crossing of that body of water by Roland Garros in 1913.

The replica is powered by a Rotec engine, which is similar to the original Gnome engine but offers greater reliability. The first flight should occur in the next few days, and will be followed by trials in preparation for the overseas flight, which should last 8 hours.
