Flying At Juvisy
( Originally Published 1910 )
FOLLOWING upon the aviation week at Rheims, similar meetings were planned at quite a number of continental towns. At Bresca M. Rougier rose to a height of 66o feet. To Juvisy the people of Paris went in thousands, and some remarkable flying took place, in spite of unpropitious weather. The Comte de Lambert was the hero of the occasion, accomplishing a flight from Juvisy to Paris and back again, the distance (about thirty-three miles) being accomplished in fifty minutes. On reaching Paris he rose to a record height, estimated at 1.200 feet, and circled round the Eiffel Tower.
