For its February 2019 issue, “Le Fana de l’aviation” presents the portrait of the North American T-28 “Fennec,” reports on how the French Air Force is combating jihad, and evokes fond memories of the Dassault Ouragan.
Issue 591 includes a feature on an aircraft used by the French Air Force from 1959 to 1962, in Algeria: the North American T-28 “Fennec”. The magazine’s team gets behind the scenes of the French Air Force, with a report on the forces involved in the air combat against jihad.
This issue also looks back at one of the most glorious pages in the history of Dassault (and the French aeronautics industry as a whole), after World War II: the creation of the Dassault Ouragan. This fighter jet (the first to be designed in France) was developed in just one year, from February 1948 to February 1949. It was produced from 1951 until the early 1980s.
Also not to be missed in this issue: the first flight of the famous Boeing 747, an article examining the complex relationship between metal and aviation, and even a piece on a plane from American aircraft manufacturer Cessna.
