Le Bourget airport
It also hosts the French Museum of Air and Space (Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace), and, every other year, the Paris Air Show.
The airport started commercial operations in 1919 and was for long Paris' only airport until the construction of Orly Airport. It is most famous as the landing site for Charles Lindbergh's historic solo transatlantic crossing in 1927.
