A boldly rendered, modernistic plane is soaring through blue skies punctuated with small white clouds, with the outline of other planes flying in formation visible in the background. The poster, with clean, effective typography, is a simple and precise graphic for a local flying club and evokes the freedom of flight. That Chassaing would design two such compelling airplane images suggests that he was connected with aviation and was clearly inspired by the subject.
