They have a Clément Ader aircraft in original state except for wings fabric.
And they have many engines of old times for those interested in mechanics.
Shadoko thank you for this information and link. Maybe, I will go for a visit in summer of the collection (unknown for me).
For "Le Bourget" museum, I search the movie's title (WWI Aviation documentary) on the big screen or some screens in the museum. I had most the time (December 2009) for look the collections than wait the movie's end for write it (title)
Do you know the title? I want to buy this movie.
I have some sequences, if they help you for an identification.
"(...)le lieutenant Miloukine Mikaïlovitch, mon ami et observateur préféré, fut naturellement l'interprète. Et nous commençâmes l'entretien technique nécessaire pour familiariser un peu mon agent (Trbitch) avec mon brave N-730, le biplace Nieuport 80 CV, qui nous transporterait le lendemain : avion aux commande duquel je me sentais le roi de l'air.(...)".
