Hello to all, I have of the friends outside of the base of Orange and today they have said that it has not flown null. Only arrival of a mirage from Dijon.
Someone knows the reason?
One be a matter of the gale or other reasons?

thanks for the collaboration

I logged Mirage 2000 "115-LE" at Orange on June 14th (yes, the day of the Orange victory in South Africa as well), probably during the overshoots with the Indians.

Can anyone confirm that this was the "79"?


Thanks,


Erik

Yes the gale (Rafales up to 100km/hour) prevented flying on Monday.
Meteo.fr predicted also Rafales on Tuesday, but they never showed up, perhaps to the heavy winds :wink:
