I believe it's the Hirsch-MAéRC H-100 in the Musee de l'Air.

This is a one-off, French, and first flew in 1954. Last flew in 1971 and was put in an air museum with only 130 flight hours on it.

At first the engine reminded me of Kinner, but no joy there. I thought that I had seen that tail structure somewhere and looked at WWI profiles - good site here for that: http://wwiaviation.com/gallery-britian.html but no joy there. In the end, I accidentally hit upon this site http://www.ctie.monash.edu.au/hargrave/sopwith2.html which identified it as a Sopwith Snark.
Quote:
Late WWI fighter prototype, a triplane with an ABC Dragonfly engine. The Snark had a wooden monocoque fuselage. For its time very, it carried heavy armament. Apart from having a disastrous engine, the Snark also suffered from structural problems. Three built.

there is no pic, but there is more info on design and development.

So - Sopwith Snark

Its the French Potez 41  (I posted it on post #148, sorry)
FOUR-MOTOR NIGHT BOMBER. Photographed in 1933, immediately after final erection, but before service roundels applied, is this "one-off" French prototype, the Potez Type 41 Bn4, which was succeeded by the later Potez Type 54. The two pairs of pylon-mounted Hispano-Suiza 12 Ybrs engines delivered a total of 3,360 h.p., giving a max. speed of 199 m.p.h. for a.u.w. of 37,480 lb. at 13,120 ft. Its undercarriage was retractable.
