french pioneers and latecoere 521

For those who interest pioneers and old planes like the breguet 19 and the latecoere 521 flown by henri guillaumet. Watch particularly the last scene of the 2nd movie : guillaumet landing in the NYC port ... (or is it at biscarosse lake ??) follow this link
all the contents may be found on the Air France website at the adress :http://www.airfrance-60ansnewyork.com/

enjoy

I'd love to be able to put online all the material i have : my studio makes patrimonials websites and videos for Air France, but i am not allowed to put it online because of the rights ...
anyway if you want to see more, (switch on the nitro mode of your adsl modem), and get on the historical portal (all the sites we made) :
http://www.airfrancelasaga.com/

i own (from my girlfriend's grand father) two nice pictures of the breguet XIX "point d'interrogation", with dieudonné costes and maurice bellonte, in hanoï, while they were doing a 7500kms raid in 1929 ... a great family patrimoine !! my girlfriend's grand father is the policeman on the right, he was at this time "colonel de gendarmerie" in the french colony.

Marry her immediately ! Those are photos to treasure. Too bad about the copyright restrictions.

Hi
Maurice Nogues was a famous french pioneer, not as popular as Mermoz or Guillaumet because he was flying to Asia and not over the south atlantic.
You can read more of him on this page :
