For the opening ceremony of the Volvo Ocean Race stopover village in Lorient, the training jetfighters showcased amazing flying aerobics in a 30 minute show at 6pm, just above the waterfront of the Keroman submarine base. The pilots will then set foot at the village and take the center of the village stage.

There lies a unlikely similarity between the Air Patrol aces and the sailors of Groupama 4: the ones are both taking their craft to the edge of their capabilities at tremendous speeds and all thriving for excellence at the extreme. Already before Groupama 4's arrival in the city of Lorient, the patrol had saluted the yacht offshore in the final stages of leg 8 when victory was nigh.

Today, the patrol carried out a flight test at 15:30, and was later invited aboard the yacht with Franck Cammas for a photo session with both the squadron and the crew. The Air Show with ll eight Alphajets hen took place in a mirage of blue, white and red smokescreens above the Lorient roadstead. A grand spectacle!
