Wednesday, August 30, 1933

I went back up to Henry's this evening, then Daddy and I and Mother and Newt went over to Carrie's. I played the piano.

Founded on August 30, 1933 through the merger of Air Orient, Compagnie Générale
Aéropostale, Société Générale de Transport Aérien (SGTA, the first French carrier,
founded as Lignes Aériennes Farman in 1919), Air Union and CIDNA (Compagnie
Internationale de Navigation). The airline had extensive routes across Europe, but also
to French colonies in northern Africa and elsewhere. During World War II, Air France
 moved its operations to Casablanca, Morocco; the airline was featured prominently in the film Casablanca.
