Hydroplane base

In the 1920s and 1930s, Marignane was one of France's main points of operation for flying boats. It even briefly served as a terminal for PanAm's Clipper flying boats.[14] Some other hydroplane operators were Aéropostale and Air Union, the latter moving over from Antibes in 1931. Marignane was also a production site for hydroplanes by Lioré et Olivier.
