Photos about the Paris Air Show, late 1950s early 1960s


Here is a series of a little over 100 photographs about the Paris Air Show (Salon du Bourget). These photographs were likely taken on two different occasions during two different air shows. The collection includes some shots of notable personalities such, there are also some overall views of the event and many photos of aircraft on static display, taxiing, and/or in flight. It's a beautiful documentary collection, consisting of large-format photos (18 cm x 24 cm), showcasing aircraft from the era, representing various nationalities, but predominantly military. This collection appears to be a valuable historical record of the Paris Air Show of that time.
