CAF French Wing

Veteran aviators of all nationalities, witnesses of the great conflicts of the 20th century, will be present, thanks to the French Wing, the French unit of the Commemorative Air Force.

The Commemorative Air Force, CAF, is the largest flying museum in the world with 175 aircraft, most of them survivors o the Second World War.
The aim of the CAF is to acquire, restore and maintain in flying condition aircraft from a period that stretches from the Second World War to the Vietnam War, and to arouse the interest of the younger generation in order to honour the pilots and crew members who fought for our freedom.

Among other things, the French Wing conducts historical researches and produces a documentary entitled “Histoire et Devoir de Mémoire” (History and Duty to Remember) and publishes interviews with veterans that can be viewed on its YouTube channel and website.
