Under the Eiffel Tower

Pilot Robert Moriarty flies under the Eiffel Tower in his racing Bonanza in 1984. It was a beautiful spring morning with maybe 5,000 people around the park and immediate area of the Eiffel Tower. In a few short minutes word spread to everyone that someone had flown through the Tower. Though not everyone saw the airplane, lots of people knew about it in short order.
