Coincidence No. 644

I am reading Paris After the Liberation by Antony Beevor & Artemis Cooper. In it I come across the name of Darius Dassault (WW2 French Resistance fighter) and his brother Marcel (aircraft engineer). [The name is resonant for me because my dad built me a model of a Dassault Mirage jet when I was about six.]

Released 1968

The next day I am talking to my wife about a training course she is having to deliver online via Zoom. It turns out her client is Dassault (Cork office).
