May 27, 2000, the mythical aerobatic couple known in the U.S. as the French Connection Airshow, disappeared in flight. Little known in France, Daniel Héligoin and Montaine Mallet, aboard two French planes, resonated with North America crowds attending the many shows they performed in for almost 27 years. They were the only couple in the world to achieve a genuine aerial ballet, with music or poetry... François Dabin was the instructor who took Montaine on her first flight which led to her Private Pilot Airplane rating before she met Daniel Héligoin. Her history and their destiny all have common dreams and tragedy. After several stories about general aviation, François Dabin had to trace the extraordinary lives of these minstrels of the sky he knew well.
