Photo Comment

Prior to the move of the Musee de l'Air to Le Bourget, many aircraft were stored or displayed at Chalais Meudon. This Breguet, named "Point d'Interrogation" set a world distance record of 4,912 miles (7905 km) in September 1929 by flying from Le Bourget to Manchuria. In 1930 it completed the first successful East-West crossing of the Atlantic, flying from Paris to New York.
