For the 100th anniversary of Le Bourget airport, RMC Découverte takes a look at the history and highlights of the global aeronautics industry’s big event.
The first airport to be built in France occupies an important place in the history of French aviation. In the space of 100 years, this crucial place has hosted many events and welcomed certain pioneers of the aeronautics world, such as Marcel Dassault, who launched business aviation there in the 1960s.
Le Bourget is one of the only airports in the world to have an aircraft maintenance and repair center for business aircraft, and it also boasts one of the first aeronautics museums: the famous “Air and Space Museum”.
This report broadcast on June 19 also offers a behind-the-scenes look at this fantastic place, via images of areas usually closed to the general public.
