The Alpha Jet, developed originally by French manufacturer Dassault-Breguet and West German firm Dornier, first flew in 1973. It remains in service with several air arms, France being the biggest current operator; the Alpha Jet is the mount of the Patrouille de France display team. At RIAT 2018, a pair of Alpha Jet E trainers will be on static display, provided by French Air Force unit Ecole d'Aviation de Chasse (Fighter School) 00.314 from Tours-St Symphorien.
