The French Minister of Air, Guy de Chambre, inspected the 1/145
squadron on May 25th, and after hearing the litany of "Cyclon's"
defects, suspended all the flying on this aircraft. He was told
about the aircraft's poor climb rate, a weak landing gear and
its faulty lowering mechanism, as well as an imperfect propeller's
pitch-changing device, cowling's swelling during diving and
unreliable cockpit's dashboard instruments. Minister's
reaction was a proper one, however, it deprived Polish pilots
of the only aircraft available to them. The very next day, however,
they decided to continue flying the defective Caudrons.
