The pilots of the two French Rafale fighter aircraft and the “Patrouille de France” aerobatic display team bid farewell to the city of Athens on Monday.
They flew in formation above the Acropolis, while releasing smoke in the colors of the Greek flag. They were accompanied by the Greek F-16 Zeus.
The French aerobatic team was in Athens to participate in the Athens Flying Week air show, held at the Tanagra air base on September 4-5.
At the Athens Flying Week, audiences were able to watch the French Rafale, and the original Warbird and the Greek Spitfire, as well as the flying ‘dance’ of the Patrouille de France and of the Saudi Hawks, the Greek F-16 Zeus and the Danish F-16 Solo Display, the RC Kavala Acro Team and the Twilight Flying Display by Italian Luca Bertossio.
