Libya, The CdG takes some rest

After 9 months of almost non stop operations (4 months, Indian Ocean / 5 months, Libya) the Charles de Gaulle will stop, August 10th, for several weeks at the Toulon harbor for maintenance purposes.

The 6 Rafale M which were operating over Libya from the aircraft carrier will be replaced by 6 French Air Force Rafale B/C on the Sigonella Air Base, Sicily.

The CdG crew has demonstrated its outstanding endurance capacity since last November. Without any doubt, they deserve those few weeks of "vacations".
