Photos of the Week: Flying Over France in a 1963 GY80

In this series, we feature a new photo or photo series each week! Send us your photos here for a chance to be featured.

This week's photos of the week were sent to us by Guillaume Lorans (@My_flying_life).

Here are 2 pics from my 1963 GY80. She is French made, by Sud Aviation. Back in the days the same factory was building the Caravelle! It's called Gardan Horizon, from the name of the engineer who designed the plane (Yves Gardan) and this old man was living in my village next to Versailles ! 

Every year we do a meeting where about 30 GY80 come, including the one of the daughter of Yves Gardan whom I'm flying with sometimes. 

The second picture is taken from Gardan's daughter GY-80 (F-BNQB) while we were flying to the meeting in Biscarosse, south West French atlantic coast :) 

Thanks for the beautiful photos Guillaume!
