Paris Air Show

Under Paris Air Show i 1982, da amerikanerne stadigvæk var i gang med rumprogrammet, aflagde NASA besøg med deres special ombyggede Boeing 747. Flyet blev brugt til at fragte rumfærgerne fra landingsstedet i Californien tilbage til Kennedy Space Center i Florida, så de kunne blive klargjort til næste flyvning.

Hver dag under hele ugen lettede 747’eren med sin Space Shuttle på ryggen og fløj rundet over Paris. Et fantastisk syn som virkelig var god PR for både for NASA og USA.

Wikipedia skriver bl.a. The Paris Air Show traces its history back to the first decade of the 20th century. In 1908 a section of the Paris Motor Show was dedicated to aircraft.[5] The following year, a dedicated air show was held at the Grand Palais[6] from 25 September to 17 October, during which 100,000 visitors turned out to see products and innovations from 380 exhibitors.[7] There were four further shows before the First World War.[8] The show restarted in 1919, and from 1924 it was held every two years before being interrupted again by the Second World War. It restarted again in 1946 and since 1949, has been held in every odd year. Læs mere her
