Arc de Triomphe

Paris, France

"At 51m high and 45m wide, this is the second largest triumphal arch. Three weeks after
the Paris victory parade in 1919 (end of WWI), Charles Godefroy flew his Nieuport biplane
through it, and was caught in a newsreel." --Ingrid

Thanks to Roli for phooning and to Ingrid for the photo idea.
