Died: on June 18, 1953 in Paris, France


Fonck was born on 27 March 1894 in the village of Saulcy-sur-Meurthe in the Vosges region of north eastern France. During his formative years, he would have received an engineering education at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts et Metiers - a point that is still in debate since there is no record of this assertion. Fonck actually left school when he was 13. Although he had been interested in aviation from his youth, he was rejected for immediate incorporation in the air service when conscripted on 22 August 1914, instead he was requested to undergo five months basic training in the combat engineers. His basic training duties involved him first in digging trenches near Épinal, and later in bridge repairs on the Moselle river.
