Puts me in mind of a Canberra. Maybe one of those aircraft used for atmospheric sampling?

SUD-OUEST SO.30 ATAR BRETAGNE, F-BAYD or F-BAYO perhaps? Just a wild guess based on the letters on the underside of the wing.

Not the Atar Bretagne but there is a Bretagne connection

The underwing letters are not part of a registration.

Thank you. That was a very good challenge. Unfortunately, I don't have anything ready approaching that quality, so it will be OPEN HOUSE.

The original image I used is captioned Su 11, but as far as I can tell the physical differences were at the front of the aircraft. The Su-11 was a direct development of the Su-9.
