Here offered a presentation photograph album documenting the 1991 Paris Air Show, as assembled by the USAF and presented by Senator Wallop [Wyoming] to Mr. & Mrs. Eugene Quinn, who accompanied the Senator to the show. The photographs document, in chronological sequence, the delegation's entire trip from Washington to Paris and back.
The images capture the diverse and many flavors of this world-wide event, established in 1909, and ever since 1949, held biennially. In 1991, the US hosted a Department of Defense display of the Stealth bomber and other Gulf War armaments. While the images aren't captioned, the album nevertheless still imparts the grandeur of the event, with images of exhibits, views from airborne aircraft, members of the delegation, scenes of Paris itself, as well as surrounding French countryside, social events held for the delegations, etc., etc.
An uncommon primary visual source document for the US participation in this 1991 event.
