The Salon du Bourget is also a platform where we find historical airplanes, who have accomplished astonishing feats for certain constructors, or renowned pilots. Let’s not forget that the airport of Bourget was the scene for milestones such as the arrival of Charles Lindbergh, after its first Atlantic Crossing. The salon also offers the possibility to watch several aerobatic planes which already have proven their worth, and are presented with incredible mastery, by aerobatic figures undeniably related to the French aviation.
