Who am I?

Lucien Romani was a unsatisfied researcher and always in perpetual search. So without waiting for the end of the experiment of Nogent-le-Roi, he continued to do research in wind energy.

The Office National d'Etudes et de Recherches Aérospaciales, and its wind tunnel at Chalais-Meudon, participated in this research. Here are some pictures of the prototypes developed and tested together from 1950 up to 1964.
