September 2011. The French Air Force also owns some E-3s, and I am meeting with their program office. We travel by public bus to Le Bourget, home of the famous Paris Air Show and landing location of Lindbergh's transatlantic flight. They feed us the most exquisite corporate lunch I have ever eaten (although, I am told, an American officer made a fool of himself some time prior and so they no longer serve us wine at lunch). I work on this program in fits and starts for a couple years.
Lots of people like to make out by the Seine. I feel like there are better places in Paris to get handsy. Places that don't smell quite as bad.
