A magical concert!
The power and purity of the sound broadcast by towers of speakers placed in a circle around the site were exceptional for an outdoor concert. All the ingredients were present to inspire emotion and awe. A memorable and magical evening.
- End of the concert at midnight and transfer to the heliport.
- The sky having cleared, we were able to return to the Nevers airport by helicopter and board our private business aircraft to head for Paris (with champagne still flowing and served by welcoming on-board personnel).
- Arrival at Paris le Bourget airport 45mn later.
A delicious combination of a private plane, a helicopter and the concert thanks to AB Corporate Aviation. What was practical was being able to leave without fighting the traffic, by flying over the traffic jams and the crowd!
A marvelous evening on the occasion of the one hundredth anniversary of the Grand Prix de France that was both original and unforgettable; that’s how Friday 14 July 2006 will go down on record.
