To mark the centennial of the “Cigognes” squadron, éditions Zéphyr present “Mirage 2000-5 – 1/2 Cigognes fighter squadron”, a magnificent work by photographer Alexandre Paringaux and journalist Frédéric Lert.

With the attention to detail that characterizes the collection, this book closely examines the history of the squadron, particularly looking at many emblematic figures who have contributed to its renown, such as René Fonck, Roland Garros, René Dorme, and Charles Guynemer.

Richly illustrated with over 400 photos, the book also offers a presentation of the Mirage 2000-5, which became part of the squadron in 1997. As always, Alexandre Paringaux and Frédéric Lert totally immersed themselves in the unit, to provide a detailed description of its various activities and missions, as well as its operational history.
