This twin-engined bi-plane bomber-prototype build by the Belgian company LACAB (Les Ateliers de Construction Aéronautiques Belges) was first flown on 22 February 1936.
Although the Aéronautique Militaire bought it, it was never adopted for service use and in May 1940 the GR.8 was found by the Germans in a hangar at Evere airfield
Photo L. Meunier.
On 4 April 1938 the LACAB GR.8 prototype crashed at Evere, seriously damaging the aircraft. However, the Aéronautique Militaire decided to repair this already obsolete machine .
