  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “The pilots of the Patrouille de France, kings of the sky” – below is their description.

    The pilots of the Patrouille de France are the undisputed masters of the air. Their planes fly at 600 kilometres an hour, just three metres apart. Every year, a new team is selected to represent the know-how and excellence of the French Air Force. But before performing across France and overseas, the pilots must spend weeks perfecting their training. We caught up with them on the French island of Corsica.
