Until last year I didnt know that in 1912 (yes 100 years ago) there was an international flying week held in my village. It was a contest for hydroplanes to determine which one would be used for the exploration of the Congo.

Last weekend we celebrated this event. One of the participants was a replica of a Donnet-Leveque, one of the contestants in 1912.

These are pictures of the event in 1912







These are pictures of last sunday
