Rafale, the winds are with you! For this back-to-school issue, the editorial board of this monthly magazine offers readers full immersion into the world of French military aviation, dedicating an entire feature to the topic.
For the September edition, “Le Fana” is showcasing Dassault Aviation’s latest fighter jet! The Rafale is the focus of a 26-page exclusive feature, with an impressive cover courtesy of none other than Daniel Bechennec.
To compile this comprehensive review, the editorial board of the magazine met with five pilots from the French Air and Space Force. Types of flying, internal systems, aircraft behavior during missions… All aspects of the flagship of French aviation are examined in detail.
In this issue, the editorial board offers a look back at what is considered to be the largest exhibition and the largest air show in the world, Airventure Oshkosh (USA), which organized an impressive 2022 edition, post-Covid-19.
As for aircraft featured by “Le Fana”, there is the Caudron G.4, which was used during World War I; the Northrop F-15 Reporter, a photo-reconnaissance aircraft used from the 1940s to the 1960s; or even the Bell “Airacuda”, an American heavy fighter produced in the mid-1930s. All in all, a fantastic back-to-school program!
