Remarks: This plane was delivered to the Air Force moments before this photo was taken. It is about to make a low pass to thank the mechanics on the ground, before flying to its new home at St Diziers.
Remarks: Photo taken during the delivery flight of this Rafale C. Handed over to the French Air Force just a couple of minutes before this photo was taken. The pilot is about to make an overshoot before going vertical and thereby saying goodbye to Dassault before heading to its new home at St Dizier.
Remarks: Close-up of the cockpit section of this brand new Rafale C, leaving for another test flight in the low October sun, late in the afternoon.
Notice the access points that are marked with the white dots to make it easier for ground personnel.
