Fouga Magisters at Cannes Mandelieu

Post by Dysko »

This August, being on holiday close to there, I visited Cannes-Mandelieu airport.

The main target of the trip was a Fouga Magister, French military jet trainer of the '50s, used by many display teams such as the Patrouille de France. This plane was based in Villanova d'Albenga up to few years ago.

It was nice to discover that there was another Magister! The second one, wearing the Red Devils belgian display team livery, arrived there few months ago.

It is even possible to fly on these jets! More info on http://magister533.com

Thanks for sharing! The Fouga Magister is a great little jet - last saw one at Mainfonds Airshow in 2017 and was impressed!

Its always good to see Magisters - very nice!

The red one isn't in a Diables Rouges scheme though, its the Dutch Historic Jet Association's example - and their own scheme.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

It was sold earlier this year, after it made gear up landing at lelystad in 2013.
