Lindbergh

Recommended Posts

Heard that today on the radio:For the 75th anniversary of Lindbergh's north Atlantic crossing, there will be a special evening at Le Bourget airport (near Paris, France) on the 28th of June. Le Bourget is the airport where there's an aviation museum, as well as one of the world's most famous airshows once every two years.The evening show starts at 19h00 local time, with free access to the museum, free access to the special exhibition about Atlantic crossing, animations on the aprons, souvenir sale, a "sound-and-light" show and fireworks at the end of the evening.A 22h22, a replica of the Spirit of St Louis built by a Swede will land at the airport. It's the exact time when Lindbergh landed 75 years ago.Cost: 10 Euros (5 Euros if you're aged 8 to 16. Free under), which is fairly cheap in my opinion.Le Bourget's museum web site (in French): http://www.mae.org/Ignore the english pages, they show the wrong dates as well as dead links.Perhaps this is worthy of a news item on Avsim's home page...__________________________________________________________EricUPDATED: List of all airlines, aircraft manufacturers and aircraft types recognised by ATC:http://www.geocities.com/eric_2203/orhttp://ftp.avsim.com/library/esearch.php?D...atID=fs2002misc
