Aeronavale Crusaders Landivisiau 1979





Line up of 10 FN F-8 E(FN) Crusaders at Landivisiau in June 1979 with  Belgian Mirage at the far end of the line-up..

Reposted via Robert Robinson on FB who comments, ".. poor picture quality due to having a Zenit-E as a first camera. They are famous for inconsistent exposure across a frame, hence nearly all mine were brighter on the left hand side. Still, 10 F-8s were always going to make a nice picture I think...I made an effort in the 70's and 80's to do French Open Days as they often had good base flight launches. In this case all the F-8's flew, amazing!"
