French Aerial Equipment

Lance Krieg took the following photos at Le Bourget during 2001

All this equipment, when painted (that is, non-wood) is a light to medium gray. This includes bombs of all sizes. Some French dashboard instruments, especially early ones, appear to be up to six inches in diameter. Note artificial lighting in display cases causes color shift to yellow on these photos.
