Flypast over Paris!

Earlier this day I was at Paris to watch the military parade. I want to share to you some of the shots that I have taken during the air show (airplanes only). I can’t recognise all of the aircraft so the regulars can edit my post if they want to put the name ;)

Flight of 9: Patrouille de France (Alphajets)

Flight of 3: ? + 2?

Flight of 4: ?

Flight of 6: ?


Flight of 5: ? + 4?


Flight of 5: ? + 4?


Flight of 2: ? + ?

Flight of 2: A400M

Flight of 3: ?

Before the parade started I have spotted a drone. Try to find it on this picture!


Laura posted about this on Insta! Great pics Avon.

Is your neck hurting for looking up a lot?



No the flypast was pretty short unfortunately :/

That’s a shame. Did you manage to see Laura?

I was there! I recorded the massive fly by over the louvre a few days ago but I’m not sure how to post it on here. Perhaps a YouTube link?

(Flyby lasted about 6 minutes for each set of aircraft) about 30-40 military planes and a ton of apache attack choppers about 30 minutes later.

No I didn’t. I saw on her instagram page that she was at her place (doing some coding) instead at the Champs-Elysée.

The only one I really can’t figure out is the twin-prop in Pic 7, flying with the Dassault Falcon. Anyone recognise it?


Oh what beautiful aircraft! The fighter jet formation and combination of colours are fantastic. Sorry for my ignorance, but this parade was related to Bastille Day?

Awesome pictures, Avon! May I know what camera did you use for these shots?

Yes it was :)

Yes I saw Macron during the parade. Trump I didn’t see him during the parade but after. I was going back home when suddenly I have seen so many cars going super fast and one was the car of Trump :D
He was really next to me (~5 meters).

The camera of my Galaxy S6 😁
