Two Rafale planes collided this Sunday, May 22 during an air meeting in the south-west of France. It is a very rare accident which did not prevent the planes from landing without clashes nor victim to be deplored, we learned from a military source. Debris falling from the sky nevertheless damaged homes. More fear than harm. During an air meeting in Cognac in Charente, two Rafale planes touched in mid-flight this Sunday. No casualties were reported but debris damaged homes. “During their tactical presentation, two Rafales from the 30th Fighter Wing touched each other in flight” around 12:40 p.m., said Colonel Nicolas Lyautey, commander of the Cognac-Châteaubernard base (Charente, South-West), where the meeting took place. was taking place. “One of them lost a piece of its drift, which during its fall damaged the roof of a house” in the neighboring town of Gensac-la-Pallue, he continued. The last accident of its kind dates back to 2010. The two aircraft, however, landed “without difficulty”, and “no injuries are to be deplored”, indicated the commander, adding that a technical investigation was in progress, and that investigations administrative and judicial would follow. Questioned by AFP on the telephone, a resident of the street where the piece of plane fell in Gensac-la-Pallue, who did not wish to be identified, indicated that the debris had “damaged a roof” and ” broken tiles” before “falling on the pavement”. It was “a piece of about one meter by 40 cm”, he explained. Such an accident is extremely rare. The last touch of this kind occurred in April 2010 during a training of the patrol of France, that is to say twelve years ago, according to the press service of the air force.
