Equipped with a powerful gas-lit
beacon, pivoting on a tall slender
metal pylon a hundred feet high, the
lighthouse can be seen 30 miles away

the new station to the nearest power-
house, several hundred miles distant.
The new beacon is named after
General Vuillemin, flight commander
who safely led a squadron of French
planes across the Sahara in 1933.
