Potez 25TOE

This is a reconstruction of one of two Potez 25 TOEs operated by the Paulistas. The aircraft became known as the ‘Nosso Potez’ (‘Our Potez’) and shot down Federal Potez A-117 before crashing on 21 or 23 September. Its number plate A-212 was hidden under the Paulista white band.

Potez 25TOE
Six Potez 25 TOEs were deployed by the Federals as bombers. This one, registered as A-117, was the only one shot down in air combat during the Paulista War, and was also the first aircraft ever shot down in air combat in all of Latin America.
