THE DUBAI JETMEN FLY WITH THE PATROUILLE DE FRANCE

During the month of October 2016 at top of Mont Ventoux, 3 Jetmen: Yves Rossy, Vincent Reffet and Fred Fugen, conducted a flight out of the ordinary with the Patrouille de France (the precision aerobatic demonstration team of the French Air Force).
The three men equipped with a rigid wing have evolved for 9 minutes alongside 8 alpha jets at an altitude of 4000 feet (1200 m) and a speed of 140 knots (260 km / h).
"Dubois", commander and leader of the Patrouille de France, said after the flight: What a fantastic experience for us pilots in the Air Force, he could fly on patrol with men.
