Calling all historical aviation buffs – we need your help?


We have created a gallery dedicated to the significant historical moments in the 100 year history of the Paris Air Show, with over 100 images of aviation’s premier show taken from the Flight archives.

But we need your help!


These images have been taken from our archives but unfortunately do not have specific data about the aircraft and the year. With this in mind we thought it would be an interesting challenge to test your aviation knowledge by allowing you to help us pinpoint the exact circumstances/subjects in these images.

All you have to do is simply comment underneath the photo (you need to be signed up member of AirSpace to do this) with the correct details and we can update the rest.

So what do you get for doing this?

Well for one you can be the pride of AirSpace, helping us to collate the best and most exclusive historical images from the history of Paris. But more than that, we will pick out the best 5 contributor’s to win an old limited edition Flight International Pen, which have on them such iconic aircraft as a Gulfstream and Boeing 747.

    I am very happy to know this photo. This is probably the photo which was taken at The First International Aircraft Exhibition
    in Paris (25 September to 17 October 1909).

    One Japanese gentleman was impressed here by the Gregoire-Gyp engine displayed and purchased it at Belgium. After he came back to Japan, he (Mr. Sinzou Morita) made the first airplane and flew it in 1911.
