With two pilots in the apartment it was bound to happen...we made a trip to the Paris Aerospace Museum...or Musee de l'Air. It is located at the LeBourget Airport, north of Paris. This airport is also famous for hosting the Paris Airshow.
The museum was missing these three blue planes in their display so it was not too impressive when we drove up but it turned out to be a good little museum. There was a extensive display dedicated to the start of flight.
Lots of very early flying machines. Then we made our way to the space side.
My husband picked out what he wants for Christmas next year, a vintage P-51 Mustang...WWI era fighter plane.
My son tells me Alaska is full of these airplanes that still fly all over the bush today, a DC-3.
Outside there were lots of fighter jets.
There was a large selection of commercial planes too...sorry I missed getting a photo of those planes. The prototype for the Concorde commercial jet was on display...I guess that is one of the big draws for the museum. A nice outing for the day.
