As every year the old timer airshow was held near Paris at "La Ferte Alais". The show was in its 36th edition with many interesting flying machines within the flying program.

 

Like every year the this program was divided into an historical part, like the Aeropostal, World War I combat flying, Pacific campaign, Russian front and much more.

 

There was also a part of the program dedicated to the French Aeronaval (French Navy) with fly by and demonstration of 4 Super Etendard accompanied by the brand new Rafale. The public was also given the oppoprtunity to make a flight over the region situated south of Paris aboard a Junker 52 3M from the Swiss JU AIR company.

 

As every year, the organisers produced a very interesting flying week-end and the great amount of visitors from all over european countries was the proof of this success.

 

With this photo report, S.B.A.P. would like to thank the "Amicale Jean-Baptiste Salis" keeping as much as possible these old machines in flying conditions. We would also like to thank "Larivière Organisation" for their obligingness and in particularl Mr Rougier who was the dedicated person for the press.

 

In one word : If you haven't gone to this air fair in your live, you have to do it.... Check out the next event.
