Paris–Le Bourget Airport is an airport located within portions of the communes of Le Bourget, Bonneuil-en-France, Dugny and Gonesse, 6 NM north-northeast of Paris, France. Once Paris' principal airport, it is now used only for general aviation including business jet operations. It also hosts air shows, most notably the Paris Air Show.
The airport started commercial operations in 1919 and was Paris's only airport until the construction of Orly Airport in 1932. It is famous as the landing site for Charles Lindbergh's historic solo transatlantic crossing in 1927 in the Spirit of St. Louis, and had been the departure point two weeks earlier for the French biplane The White Bird , which took off in its own attempt at a transatlantic flight but then mysteriously disappeared.
