Our grasp of french is disappointing to say the least considering how close France is to us, but from the genius of Google Translator the movie above outlines the various stages of development of the Roland Garros Airport. Formerly known as Gillot Airport, it is located 7 km (4 mi) east of Saint-Denis, Réunion, in France.

The film was made for the Chamber of Commerce by, they have some nice renders on their site and various other videos that are well worth a look. The modelling was by Fred Brun-Picard with sound by Wa Prod.
