Etretat Jumieges Normandie Marc Haegeman


Charles Nungesser and François Coli, both French World War I veterans, attempted to cross the northern Atlantic non-stop for the first time in 1927.
The pilots were last seen flying over Étretat in their "Oiseau blanc" biplane in the early morning of May 8. They never reached their destination. Their bodies were never found. Two weeks after their failed attempt, Charles Lindbergh successfully linked New York with Paris.
