The Aerotrain was a french project in the early 70’s, an incredible technological initiative supposed to renew our means of transportation. Unfortunately, the Aerotrain had a tragic fate, leaving its legacy to the TGV. Far from the medias and the politics, Jean Bertin managed to bring his vision to the USA.
