Gonesse is a commune in the northeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 16.5km from the centre of Paris.The commune lies immediately north of Le Bourget Airport, and it is six kilometres (four miles) southwest of Charles de Gaulle International Airport.HistorySince Carolingian times, cereals have been grown in Gonesse. In the period of the 12th through the 16th centuries, the cultivation of grain was supplemented by drapery, in particular the production of the coarse woolen material of the gaunace. The commune was an important producer of wheat for the Parisian market in modern times, until the decline of its bakery trade at the end of the 18th century helped feed a strong migration to the capital.The world's first hydrogen filled balloon — the unmanned Le Globe, launched by Jacques Charles and the Robert brothers on the Champ de Mars in Paris on 27 August 1783 — flew for forty-five minutes and landed in Gonesse, where the reportedly terrified local peasants destroyed it with pitchforks. This caused the government to issue a statement on the harmlessness and the scientific value of such experiments.
