39 years ago

Recommended Posts

39 years ago the Tupolev Tu-144S reg. CCCP-77102 crashed at Goussainville near Paris, during an airshow flight from Le Bourget. So I wish to share with you these pictures taken by my father at the time. They were taken with an old negative camera, so the quality is... digestible.

Last turn...

The Dassault Mirage G8, a beautiful aircraft who was sacrificed for the benefit of the future 2000.

 

 

 

The USAF sent five "Phantom II" to the airshow, still wearing their S.E.A theme.

 

 

 

The Red Arrows Folland Gnat, perfect as usual.

It's clearly right, and this as the Mirage 4000 was sacrified for this filth that is the Rafale...
