African Rally | From September to October
At the end of the First World War, Pierre-Georges LATECOERE thought about an airmail service with the aim of connecting Europe to the continents of Africa and South America.
This project was submitted to the Assistant Secretary of State for Aeronautics, September 7, 1918.
December 25, 1918 with Cornemont as pilot, he flew over the Pyrenees from Toulouse to Barcelona.
March 9, 1919, with pilot Lemaître he joined Rabat from Toulouse with stopovers in Barcelona, Alicante and Malaga. He brought to Marshal Lyautey, waiting for him on the airfield, the newspaper “Le Temps” from the previous day in Toulouse and a bunch of fresh violets to the Marschallin.
