Delivered in 1963, the Etendard has served various Aeronavale units, including 11F, 15F, 17F and 59S. It was severely damaged on board carrier Clemenceau when the port undercarriage leg broke during a catapult start. It was nevertheless repaired and finally withdrawn in 1987.
Quatorze Julliet brought this Mirage 2000 to Evreux. The aircraft took part in the annual massive formation flight in support of the French national parade over the Champ de Elysees. Great to see that long after burner flame!
