On Sunday, May 22, two Rafale planes collided in mid-flight during an airshow at the 709 station in Cognac-Châteaubernard.

The incident occurred at 12:40 p.m. on Sunday, May 22, at the national airshow at the military base 709 Cognac-Châteaubernard.

During their tactical demonstration, two Rafale fighter jets collided in mid-flight, but both planes landed safely.

One of Rafale’s upper tails appears to have been damaged during the crash.

According to witnesses, the noise sounded like a gunshot. The collision’s debris destroyed a house in the village of Gensac-la-Pallue, but no one was hurt.

There have already been three investigations launched. ‘There is just one priority in aeronautics: safety.’ Colonel Lyautey, the airbase commander, says, “We have to understand what happened.”
