Air France releases footage of ‘Athos A350’ display with Patrouille de France – Business Traveller

Air France has released images and a video of a recent air display which it undertook with the Patrouille de France aerobatics unit.

The event took place at the end of September as part of Air France’s 90th anniversary celebrations, as well as marking the 70th anniversary of the Patrouille de France.

The flight involved a total of 11 aircraft, including an Air France A350-900 (named ‘Les Sables-d’Olonne’) which was being delivered from Airbus’ assembly site in Toulouse to Paris CDG.

The display flight  – dubbed ‘Athos A350’ – was filmed at over 2,500 metres above the Camargue by aerial footage specialist Eric Magnan of Airborne Films, using a French TBM 700 DAHER camera-mounted aircraft “incorporating a leading-edge gyro-stabilized camera system”.

The video was also set to music by composer Augustin Saldjian, performed by the Prague philharmonic orchestra.
