Feminin Fly In

Today’s Poster.


Another one for Women’s History Month, this was also picked up by the Musee de l’Air on their Twitter feed. A Women’s Aviation Meet, believed to be 1953, in August at Dinard. They add that the poster’s artist, Jacques Jacquelin used the magazine 1952 Paris Match No.173 for inspiration, notably the release of a film ‘Horizons Sans Fin’ (Endless Horizons) directed by Jean Dréville about the life of Aviatrix and record holder Hélène Boucher played by Gisèle Pascal. Always loose threads to follow up!
