  • Paris Le Bourget Museum

    Hello everybody
    I am considering a visit to the Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace - Aéroport de Paris - Le Bourget.
    Seeing the images online, I can't find any photos of the planes on display on jetphotos.
    So a doubt arose: is it possible to take pictures inside the museum or is it forbidden?
    Thanks for the info and sorry for my bad English.

      I went 3 months ago and It was amazing - definately worth a visit. The highlight is definately seeing an a380 in an aviation museum and being able to be on "ramp" at the airport. There are different hangars with seperate sections: Helicopters, WW2, French Aviation, Concorde, and pre-ww2 I think.
      + The outside section which is on ramp.

          Hm. And I was at Le Bourget, on one of the first Paris Air Shows in the 21st century. 2005, as I assume.
          Yes, I am very old, so old that I really had a life before I became a jetphotos member...

          But also yes, my home airport since almost 44 years is Lohausen International (EDDL). And that's also the airport where I started to Roissy, back then. On board a quite little Airbus,
          with Air France (!). As I assume today, 16 years later, that must have been an a/c, smaller than an A320, could that have been an AF-A319?
          A good flight on my way to Paris, which is not a miracle, as the Paris Air Show traditionally takes place in June, so exactly that one month when in Paris the sun burns really hot. The only thing I also remember after 16 years (anno 2005) is,
          one 27 year old young German aviation enthusiast, among let's say 150 French speakin business men. And French business men talk alot after the jet has landed at Roissy, in French, of course.

          Which by then must've been easier for me than today. I had French at school, and in 2005 I was definitely 16 years closer to my French at school than today.

          But there is another reason why I contribute today to this topic, after 16 years. I wouldn't show a 747 in my jetphotos avatar since more than 13 years, if that weren't the reason for me to travel to Paris in 2005. Here she is, beautiful lady (attention, this is the French Original, thus the language is.. French):
          https://www.museeairespace.fr/a-voir...ss/boeing-747/

          My French since then became a little bit rusty, mais je peut traduir le un ou le otre mot.. :
          "Le AF-B741 avec le nombre 747-128 (28 pour Air France) F-BPVJ se pose au Bourget en Fevrier 25, 2000 . " - Mais oui.

          The Boeing 747-128, with -28 as the Boeing customer code for Air France, and registration France - Bravo Papa Victor Juliet, se rendre, she went to Le Bourget on
          February 25th of the year 2000.

          Sad enough, back then in 2005 I was not in the cockpit of that beautiful lady, which nowadays seems possible if you can show all the normal documents for a 747 flight in the year 2021,
          so, German passport, your flight ticket to and from Paris, and your overnight address in Paris for at least two nights.

          So, today, 16 years later, I'm not only ready to visit her again. I would also be able to correct a mistake which I begun 16 years ago, not to have visited her cockpit.

          And I still remember where I stood 16 years ago to take my photos (on a small analogue camera, and I don't know if these 16 year old negatives still exist somewhere here in this house..):
          of course I was lookin for at least a little bit of shadow, it was June, the sun was burning hot, assumed +32°C or +34°C without a cloud in the blue sky. So where do you find shadow,
          next to a Boeing 747. Not only under the mighty starboard wing, between engine #3 and the main gear..

          but that would be a good example for a little bit of shadow, still +30°C, but a little less bright sun light down there, which is not so bad if you have good pilot's eyes.

          That btw is a true story which I have not told to anyone, not in 16 years, not since the year when it happened.

          But I just thought, that topic would be worth my jetphotos forum entry #1600, almost, #1599. Le Bourget. In my eyes one of the best places which I've visited so far. And I was so young back then,
          only 27..

          Today, my next number in life is 44 ..

            Le Concorde must have been a big thing at encounter on the apron, with only one mistake. Nobody in Germany ever owned a Concorde, afaik. The 747 with the nightblue tailfin is in Germany since 1970. So - wasn't here enough space for two later famous four engined jets? I don't know, I'm too young to say that.

            Otherwise I might have chosen a different nickname 13 years ago, something like.. 'LH Concorde', with a nightblue tailfin and 'our' bird on the tailfin (which in German is a 'Kranich').

            But today, Le Concorde is also at Le Bourget, and I don't know since when she's there. 2005? Then I should have seeen her, but I missed her.

            And the Concorde community today in the year 2021 also seems to be very strong. Alot of former Le Concorde Flight Captains are still proud of that a/c type, so that they provide their own website
            with alot of info, and nice photos. And I like to mention this website here, because one of these Captains also appeared on German TV, and I was lookin for his name today for almost one hour.
            His name is, and you only have to say one word to me or another jetphotos member, and your name will immediately deleted if you like, Cpt. John Hutchinson (Concorde).
            And this is the Concorde flight crew website where I again found him:
            https://www.heritageconcorde.com/con...ritish-airways

            Another good aircraft, definitely.
