Presentation

The stele was installed in commemoration of the inventor of the seaplane who accomplished his first flight over the Étang de Berre on 28 March 1910.
Born in Marseille in 1882 to a family of shipowners, Henri Fabre set up his workshop in Martigues in 1906, on the quai Toulmond (in the Île district), to design his creations.
This workshop has become a restaurant, Villa Sorriso.

On March 28, 1910, he flew from La Mède and landed in Martigues, thus making the first flight in a seaplane.
A stele was inaugurated on March 28, 1965, in his presence, to celebrate the 55th anniversary of this historic first flight. On this occasion, the brilliant aviator was made honorary citizen of the city of Martigues.
