Even during war time, the tradition must go on : For his last take off as a navy pilot, "FEF", a French Air Force pilot who spent almost 3 years in the French Navy 12F squadron as an exchange officer, receives the last salute of the other Rafale M pilots of the squadron. The tradition also demands that the catapult officer gives the launch order with a navy saber instead of the usual green flag. During his journey in the navy, FEF will have perform 154 carrier landings, day and night.
Note that the Rafale M31 on the pict is the last Rafale M delivered so far.
