aviateur

A small personal word

My father was born in 1914 in La Chaldette, a little village on the Aubrac.
He then lived in Badaroux near Mende. Unfortunately life moved him away from his country.

As a child, I spent all my holidays in Aumont Aubrac where the Beast also caused havoc.

My father often described us the story of the Beast of Gevaudan and I remember I was trembling in fear.

During the evening walk, it was easy to imagine the Beast hidden in a shrubbery, ready to jump on us.

la bestia !! la bestia !!

He traveled a lot in his life. He loved aviation and was committed in the army in order to fly. Unfortunately, the war came and the conditions were not the best to satisfy his passion.

He has won several patents, and the cross of war.

My father died in September 2001 and I dedicate this site to my father, to his memory.
