Laurent Jolia-Ferrier, , announces:

I have the pleasure to inform you that a free application dedicated to Pierre Clostermann is available from the App Store.
(I am looking for someone who would agree to translate the application into English. This is an unpaid 'job' like everything I do to perpetuate the memory of Pierre Clostermann. Please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you can help!)

This application includes:

- A short biography
- A description of the planes that counted in Pierre's life
- A list of his victories and decorations
- A list of the 14 books he wrote + a summary of everyone of them (including the seldom-found 'Une chasse dans le ciel' - only 66 prints)
- A map of important locations in Pierre's life
- An (exclusive) excerpt of the restored version of the 'Le Grand Cirque' film shot in 1949
