Sharing the values of efficiency, reliability and authenticity with the French Air Force, Bell & Ross teams up once again with a combat unit to celebrate its anniversary.

One of the most famous units in the French Air Force, the 3.3 Ardennes fighter squadron celebrated its 70th anniversary at the 133 Nancy-Ochey base on Friday, September 20th.  Bell & Ross was there.

On September 20th, beneath a miraculously clear sky, the 3.3's Mirage 2000 Ds, along with the Rafale "Tiger Meet" and Epsilon from the Cartouche Doré unit, presented impressive demonstrations to mark the squadron's 70th anniversary.
One of the Mirages, decorated in a livery specially designed for the occasion, led the airshow and painted the sky in the colors of the 3.3 Ardennes, while on the ground, ceremonial drills, a presentation of decorations and parades marked this commemorative day.

In the evening, several hundred serving and retired pilots, navigators and mechanics met in an immense aircraft hangar to celebrate the anniversary late into the night, with the participation of Bell & Ross.
