REQ: Paris, 7 August 2021

Post by Maurice »

Last Saturday evening there was a small performance from the Patrouille de France near the Eiffel tower. They performed a smoke on formation fly by, followed by a split and another flyby. This brief display repeated about three times before permantly dissapearing (to Villacoublay most likely). Earlier that morning, the Patrouille left Finland.

Linked to this, there was also a formation of Fennecs orbiting the aera. According to ADSB, the 5534 was one of them. My questions (long shots, I am aware...):

- Does anyone know the reason for the display?
- Does anyone know the ID of the other Fennec?
- Does anyone have the ID's of the PdF's performing?

Many thanks!

Reason for the display was the closing ceremony for the Olympic Games, and the handover of the olympic flame to France who will organize the games in 2024.
for the rest i don't know.
