General Stéphane Mille, Chief of the Air and Space Force Staff, and our Chairman and CEO, Eric Trappier, today inaugurated the exhibition “From the Ouragan to the Rafale: 70 years of industrial and operational excellence”.

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the entry into service of the MD-450 Ouragan, the first mass-produced French-designed jet aircraft, the Air and Space Force Staff and Dassault Aviation are displaying an example of this aircraft alongside a two-seat Rafale, in the northern gardens of the Hôtel National des Invalides in Paris until September 18.

The Ouragan and Rafale were designed and produced by Dassault Aviation and a chain of partners and subcontractors that now includes 400 companies. These two aircraft symbolize the remarkable reconstruction and development effort made by the Air and Space Force Staff and the French aeronautics industry from the 1950s to the present day.
