This tribute to Orly, the oldest airport in Paris, celebrates 100 years of innovation in architecture, science, and aeronautics. Orly began as a military airfield, and during World War II played a major role both for the occupying German forces and later for the Allies. In the postwar era, Orly became a major commercial gateway, hosting some of the first transatlantic flights, as well as a glamorous location for major motion pictures. Today, the airport has become a city unto itself, and remains one of the most important airports within Europe. Complete with new and archival photography, this book offers an unprecedented look into the evolution of an airport as a mirror of 20th-century history.
