For aviation - 20 years later More skeptics Joseph Prudhomme... My son is running to take the plane! With a superb picture of a man wearing a hat and an overflowing bag, with a telescope and an umbrella, running towards an airplane next to the ghostly silhouette of a man showing him the way, another airplane flying overhead and dates and information commemorating the 65,000 km round-the-world trip made by Costes and Le Brix in 1928 and Farman's success in 1908 Printed for the Official Exhibition of the Paris Air Show (since 1909)
