On Saturday and Sunday, May 21–22, 2016, beginning at 9:00 a.m., the World War I aviation centennial commemoration will take place.
This aerial festival commemorates the Battles of Verdun and the Somme, which left traces that will never be forgotten. The year 1916 was a pivotal year in aviation, particularly in the case of Verdun, the first battle to begin with a struggle for air superiority. This air factor was later incorporated by the Allies during the Battle of the Somme.
Visitors to the airshow will see the re-creation of a campaign airfield as well as various demonstrations and exhibitions, including in particular the flight of vintage aircraft from that era.
The festival is open to all at the Meaux-Esbly airfield.
