A Visit to Le Bourget


Last month I had a chance, while spending some extended time in Paris for work, to visit the Air and Space Museum in Le Bourget.

http://www.museeairespace.fr

The museum is located within a large airport in the Bourget suburb of Paris, and is the site the Paris Airshow (which takes place usually in June).

It has an amazing collection of - what else - French (mostly Dassault) jet aircraft, including some weird looking experimental aircraft, but also Montgolfieres, some very early 20-th century planes (Bleriot), some very nice WWII warbirds (including a FW-190A and a Spitfire Mk. IX) and two Concorde.
