It's Called Rafale Not Raffle

Hello, IFC!

On my recent planespotting topic, I posted some pictures of an aviation fair at Le Bourget (LFPB). 48 out of the 50 voters asked for another topic for it, so here goes.


One of the many gear struts holding up the 300 tons of A380.


Ariane being watched upon.


You seemed to enjoy this nice little Mercure so here is another shot.


If anyone calls this a Raffle again I am going to lose it.

Rafale means gust in French. A gust is something that appears on METARs. Surprisingly, I have never seen a METAR with 34017RAFFLE28KT so until that happens, I will not accept anyone calling it a raffle. In fact, if I see anyone call it a Raffle, I will say 737MIN.


One water banana, one Mercure, and one tower.
Also the nose cone sums up my life


One very m o s s y tucano

One e l o n g a t e d Caravelle


A Transall after it’s 50 years of service


Last but not least, a jet with a front tyre flatter than me.

Thank you for scrolling!

See you soon 😏

As always, love your shots! Happy you put another Mercure shot in here. And that Caravelle is lookin’ very classy.

I’ve also never heard/seen anyone call it a “Raffle” funny enough.

Anyway, keep up the great work mate!

The “Rafale” is one sleek looking bird. Never forget the first time I saw one was on boad the E-3 in seat three landing at Redflag 08-1. French Marines I believe. Nice shots!
