« Part 6: Old school Part 7 of Other series Part 8: Nicely aged bench »

I found this link about this father and son that made planes in my city ( Geneva Switzerland) . Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet since ipad doesn’t do flash… Yes it is in french, but I imagine it is still a pleasure to watch. The film is from ‘84 , it’s pretty cool to think that these guys were still working at that time. I am going to see if I can find out any more about them. Here’s the link:

I understand perhaps 7 word in french but just saw the whole film. What a lovely old couple. Imagine being able to visit such a place and work in their workshop.. Wow!

Well it looks like the building doesn’t exist anymore. The son Eric never married so no kids to continue the buisness, but I don’t know if he is still alive. Finding info about them is harder than I thought….

Have your say...
