Italian title : Requiem per un commissario di polizia
Marc Porel (Camille)
Julian Negulesco (Dov)
Charles Denner (Serge Monnier)
A small-time crook wants to break his older brother out of prison. He takes a policeman hostage to exchange him. The last scene takes place in Le Bourget. Note: during the negotiations to obtain a plane, he asks to leave from Le Bourget. Commissioner Dekervan (played by Raymond Pellegrin) refuses, saying that "it will be Corbeil"... The action takes place in Aéroport de Paris-Le Bourget ... because there is neither airport nor airfield in Corbeil!

The same (or another ?) Super Constellation of CATAIR ...
Quite rare to see a Cessna 310 without its wingtip fuel tank ...
Wearing ex Air Canada livery. Either from EAS-Europe Aero Service or Invicta International Airlines. Too blurry to spot.
One of the French Gloster Meteor NF.14 ended at the Paris (Le Bourget) Air and Space Museum but in 1973 they were all still in active service with the CEV (Centre d'Essais en Vol / flight research establishment).
