It is a story little known in the English-speaking world; this 180pp, budget, B&W version of the lavishly-illustrated, full-colour first edition tells the remarkable story behind the Le Mans celebrations of 2008, and the 2009 Pau centennial of the first pilot school in the world. Includes over 150 antique French postcards; also newspaper reports and posters of these and other events of the Belle Epoque period of flightin France.
