The Air Force heritage in the spotlight at base 701 in Salon-de-Provence

The Air Force heritage in the spotlight at base 701 in Salon-de-Provence

Former military personnel and associations came to exhibit vintage aircraft, in working order, on Friday July 5, at base 701 in Salon-de-Provence, just before the traditional guard exchange ceremony last Friday.

An opportunity for students to discover how aircraft from major periods in history worked. Like the Bréguet, a maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft used by the French Navy. It notably served in the Gulf War.

Jean-Luc is a member of the Alizée Marine association. He encourages future pilots to come and discover how the Bréguet works.

This plane was built in 1959, you can fly for four to five hours. At that time, there was the pilot, the technicians and a cabin for the radar operator. Thanks to the signals captured by the radar, it allowed him to understand the location of submarines in his area but also the nationality.

After serving France as an electromechanic, Jean-Luc recovered old planes and restored them in order to make them fly again.

This day is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on French military heritage.

I came from Cuers (in the Var, Editor’s note). The Air Force called us to exhibit. We do it with pleasure. The students discover our pieces. This kind of meeting helps us raise funds to continue restoring planes.

The Navy and the Armed Forces are working with the association to transfer the planes to the associations responsible for giving them a second life and keeping the history of the French Air Force alive.
