Meeting de l'Air St.Dizier-Robinson,  1 July 2017

In the first weekend of July a Meeting de l'Air was held at BA113 St.Dizier-Robinson, home of the French Air Force Rafales. Although the weather forecast wasn't very good for the weekend we visited this openday. In the late friday evening we drove by KNVOL bus towards St.Dizier where we arrived in the early morning. It had been raining all night long.


When we arrived it was still raining, and the forecast for the rest of the day wasn't any better. We first did a walk along the small static display. Eventually we ended up in one of the hangars which gave us a dry view on the flying display.


Unfortunately there wasn't much of a flying display, due to the rain and the low clouds. The morning part of the flying display was cancelled, only a single Rafale did a quick weather check, and the Swiss Air Force Puma did a demo in the pouring rain. It the late afternoon we had a few dry minutes, which we used to take some shots of the nicely painted Mirage 2000Ds. Around four o'clock the weather was finally good enough for some flying action.
