New Straits Times - - News -

SUBANG JAYA: The rainy weather pro­vided some spec­tac­u­lar “vapes” as the French-made Das­sault Rafale multi-role com­bat air­craft demonstrated its blis­ter­ing per­for­mance and phe­nom­e­nal agility dur­ing an aerial dis­play at the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) base here yes­ter­day.

As part of his state visit, French Pres­i­dent Fran­cois Hol­lande and his del­e­ga­tion were treated to a flight demo af­ter tour­ing the static dis­play of the Air­bus A400M At­las tac­ti­cal trans­ports op­er­ated by the RMAF.

De­liv­er­ies of the huge, four-en­gined trans­ports be­gan in 2015. The RMAF op­er­ates four A400Ms to sup­ple­ment its fleet of Lock­heed Martin C-130 Her­cules.

Hol­lande was in a cor­dial mood as he wit­nessed the flight dis­play with De­fence Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Hisham­mud­din Hus­sein.
