EADS Colomban Cri-cri (F-PRCQ): homebuilt recreational aircraft

The Colomban Cri-Cri (or Cricri) is the smallest twin-engined manned aircraft in the world, designed in 1973 by French aeronautical engineer Michel Colomban. The name Cri-Cri comes from the nickname of Christine, one of Colomban’s daughters. It is also the French term for the sound of a cricket or a cicada, or an informal name for the insects themselves.
