2017 Patrouille de France Flyovers

Post by RyanS » Sat Mar 25, 2017 4:57 pm

The Patrouille de France have performed the first of their many photos ops on their North American tour today, in the cloudy skies over New York. I've seen one video so far, but I'm sure there will be more!

I saw a mention that they will be featured on Fox news at about 1:50pm Eastern time today.

More photos from New York. Their Washington DC flyover is in doubt because of low ceilings - hopefully they can manage!

I was in the Liberty Island to see them. Wow!
I want to see them under a blue sky.

The view from my hospital's parking garage in Kansas City, 6April2017. They made a single East-West pass over the Liberty Memorial (WWI memorial) followed by a North-South pass. They looked really sharp, it's just too bad they were limited to 2 passes...

The Patrouille de France joined the Blue Angels and buzzed the beach in a joint formation tonight. Check out the beautiful sight!
