French Air Force Patrouille de France

France's national aerobatic team, the Patrouille de France, displays a formation of eight Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jet E trainers. Based at Salon de Provence, the team celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2013. It started out on the F-84G Thunderjet, followed by the Dassault Ouragan and Mystère IV, and then the Fouga Magister. During its time flying the distinctive butterfly-tailed Magister trainer, the Patrouille appeared at the first ever Air Tattoo at North Weald in 1971. Conversion to the Franco-German Alpha Jet occurred a decade later. The team will be appearing on the Friday and Saturday of RIAT 2014.
