  • Description

    Veiled in darkness and shrouded by secrecy - General de Gaulle's early morning departure from Orly Airport, Paris, Dec 9, for a five-day Algerian tour.

    Photographers were kept at a distance. There was no farewell ceremony, no pomp and circumstance, none but the barest necessity of airport lighting, as the General and his party slipped quietly into one of the two Caravelles that had been kept ready and waiting on the runway. The final choice of the aircraft to carry de Gaulle was not made until very shortly before take-off.
