Very nice! But now he seems lost in the flatness of Northern France! ;)
(I'm also impressed by the state of the wreckage they managed to repair)

I found this on wikipedia (but only in French):

Raoul Echard in the international meeting in Zurich, 1922

Google translation :

"Captain Raoul Echard, commander of the French squadron "Les Cigognes" came on the airfield in Dübendorf for participation in the international meeting in Zurich. A three-stage competition "circuit of the Alps" was organized on this occasion. After the first two steps without problem is in the final stage of Thursday, September 7, 1922, Dübendorf between Bellinzona and that the accident occurred at 24:25 above the village of Bodio.

With its 300 horsepower Spad, the commander is rapidly and exceeds the speed of its competitors, then the right wing comes off and the aircraft pitched nose. The driver was found dead on Mount Ghiso.

The organization of the French Air Force was for much of his work and he commanded the French squadron in Mulhouse.

Knight of the Legion of Honor May 22, 1917 and received two citations from the Military Medal and the Croix de Guerre. He is buried in the cemetery of Bonsecours (Seine-Maritime)."
