Little Penny Dreadful

Paris Air Show, 1909

Forerunner of the Paris Air Show, the first international Air Show took place from September 25th to October 17th, 1909 at the Grand Palais in Paris (France). Created by André Granet and Robert Esnault-Pelterie, this first show entirely dedicated to ’things of the air’ welcomed 100,000 visitors and 380 exhibitors. The star of this first show was the Blériot type XI monoplane, in which Louis Blériot first crossed the Channel a few months before.
