European Heritage Days at Safran Aerospace Museum

The Safran Aerospace Museum welcomed a huge crowd during European Heritage Days on September 14-15, 2013.

More than 2,600 visitors came to the Safran museum in Villaroche, near Paris, for the 30th European Heritage Days, to discover "these magnificent men in their flying machines." In particular, they got a close-up look at certain aeronautical artifacts dating back more than a century – like the Gnome Sigma rotary engine, part of the museum's permanent collection, that powered Roland Garros' Morane-Saulnier Type H monoplane on the first non-stop flight across the Mediterranean on September 23, 1913!
