As well as being Air-Britain’s 70th Anniversary in 2018, it is our French branch’s 50th Anniversary. Founded in 1968, as ‘Branch Française d’Air-Britain’ (BFAB), it is also known as ‘Trait d’Union’ (which translates as hyphen). Their Annual General Meeting was held at the museum at La Ferté Alais south of Paris. Two of Air-Britain’s Trustees (Nigel Dingley and Steve Mitchell) accepted BFAB’s invitation to attend and presented their Chairman, Jean Delmas, with an award from the UK celebrating the BFAB’s 50th Anniversary. Following the formal business there was a celebratory luncheon. We anticipate that BFAB will attend our AGM later in the year.
