🇫🇷French Air Force fighter Rafale caught power line during training flight
The two fighter jets from Orange Air Base flew over the city of Le Castell in southern France on Wednesday afternoon. During the flight, one of the two fighters hooked on a power line, as a result of which the inhabitants of the village were left without electricity for 4 hours.
Shortly before this, the mayor of Le Castell, passing through the city in his car, noticed how one of the two planes was flying at an extremely low altitude.
"It flew so low and it made such a loud noise. I looked up and saw a second plane behind," Benoit Guen said.
After they flew by, the witness saw the wires from the power transmission line fall to the ground.
The plane was damaged (see photo). An investigation into the incident has begun.
