The Patrouille de France is the oldest formation aerobatic team in the world! Today I am joined by Athos 1, the Leader of the Patrouille de France, Major Samuel Lanos.
The Patrouille de France has a mesmerising show with 9 Alpha jets and coloured smoke, representing the National Flag. They are made up of highly experienced Fast Jet pilots, who have successfully passed the selection criteria of the PAF.
Samuel is the former Athos 4 and has recently taken over the leadership. Their hard work in training takes place in the winter months, thus ensuring the team is polished, ready for the summer airshow season across Europe.
The PAF have a unique feature of the team make up, not found in any other display team. Tune in to find out what it is, LIVE at 2pm.
