City Update II: France captures five cities: Amiens, Angers, Nantes, Nîmes, and Reims. The update also includes Paris–Le Bourget Airport (LFPB) in both standard and festival configurations, the latter covering the Paris Air Show that takes place there every two years.

Some highlights from each city:

  • Amiens, located in France’s northern region, is home to the Amiens Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral in France.
  • Angers, in the western region, is renowned for the towering Angers Cathedral and its black- and white-walled castle.
  • Nantes, near the Atlantic coast just west of Angers, invites aerial exploration of its myriad architectural displays along the Loire River and of the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany.
  • Nîmes, in southern France, offers an incredible collection of Roman-era architecture, including the Arena of Nîmes, an amphitheatre that still hosts live shows for vast audiences.
  • Reims, located 80 miles northeast of Paris, claims some of the best examples of French Gothic architecture, notably Reims Cathedral.
  • Paris–Le Bourget Airport (LFPB), the landing site of Charles Lindbergh’s historic solo transatlantic crossing in 1927 in the Spirit of St. Louis.
