Paris Air Salon (France), May 1971

Paris Air Salon (France), May 1971

On May 27th and 28th Hans and Frank visited the Air Salon at Le Bourget near Paris. The available area for the Static Show was packed with aircraft – both civil and military registered – , but nevertheless some nice pictures could be made.

This report displays many types that were very modern at the time: the prototype of the Mirage F1, the Mirage Milan and the Mirage G.8, a swept-wing version of the Mirage (this Mirage G.8 was the F-111 competitor at the time); the latter two types in fact never saw service. New was also the Puma helicopter and the Breguet 941S transport aircraft. All in all this Paris show is a most interesting vehicle to go back in time again.
