In issue 8 of the bimonthly Air Power magazine, discover the 3rd part of our presentation of France’s 1967 air forces. This was a pivotal year, midway between the mass creation of most of France’s current squadrons and the “year of the Aces” honoring champions from World War I.
The issue also brings you a special feature on the ½ Cigognes fighter squadron, a true legend in the history of French military aviation, which began with flimsy wood and canvas aircraft, and continues today with the Mirage 2000-5F. Ouragan, Mystère IVA, Mirage IIIC, Mirage IIIE, Mirage 2000C… Find out all there is to know about this combat unit, which joined BA 116 a few years ago.
This new opus is also an opportunity to revisit the 70 years of the Buck Danny saga, the French-Belgian aviation series created in 1947, with over 50 issues published to date.
