On pages 6/7 of the September 2019 issue of TCM, the aeroplane is a French-built SNCASE SE 161 Languedoc, powered by four 900HP Gnome Rhone engines.
Air France used 40 of them – 100 were built. It was able to carry 33 to 40 passengers. This one, registered F-BCUN, was number 61.
Alas, I don’t know the name of the flight attendant!
Alain Janssens, France.
