      One pilot is safe, but the rescuers are looking for the other pilot.

                        French Gazelle pilots arrowing MEDEVAC (in Fr)

                        Read also report by RFI that uncovered the story: http://www.rfi.fr/afrique/20190624-h...tage-audacieux

                        Ggl Translate:
                        A Gazelle helicopter on Operation Barkhane was shot down by jihadists on 14 June on the border between Mali and Niger. The French state-major spoke until then of an "emergency landing".
                        Friday, June 14, in the morning, the soldiers of Barkhane lead to fighting in the heart of a jihadist hideout on the border between Mali and Niger, helped by the forces of both countries. A French Gazelle helicopter then tries to connect a 7.62 caliber Kalashnikov-PKM machine gun which caused a fire and a loss of power, obligatorily the crew to make a reversal near the fighting, on a dusty ground with a reduced visibility.[/COLOR]
                        The pilot and the leader At the back, an elite commando is a little less well. He manages to extract his comrades from the aircraft, first and foremost a Tiger-type attack helicopter to come to assist them, at the risk of being shot in his turn.
                        But this two-seater machine is not designed for transport. Barkhane's soldiers then apply an immediate measure: the two most seriously blessed soldiers are strapped to the outside of the aircraft, near the landing gear. The commando joins the broken machine, blows it up and exfilters into another device.
                        This event is signified by the state of mind of the fighting that has taken place in recent weeks on the border between Mali and Niger. That day, 20 members of an armed group are probably involved in the Islamic State group for the Great Sahara. Twenty motorcycles, weapons and means of communication were recovered, then the major state in French.
                        The three soldiers wounded in the crash were able to join a military hospital in France.

                        We have discussed that already but the Survival of the front seat occupant in case of crash is compromised in the Gazelle by the weird installation of the Viviane roof mounted sight without bracing.

                          Scramble reports that an interesting set of Su30MKI, C-17 and Il78MKI will be based in South West of France at Mont de Marsan during an exercice lasting bw the 1st and 14th of July. An interesting Opportunity not to miss if you are on vacation around.

                          The Bharatiya Vayu Sena (BVS, Indian Air Force) is participating in this year's Garuda VI exercise at Mont de Marsan (France) with four Sukhoi Su-30MKI Flanker fighter aircraft. The exercise will start on 1 July 2019 and continue until 14 July 2019.

                          In a brief video about the exercise Air Commodore M. Ranade revealed that four Su-30MKI fighters, two Boeing C-17A Globemaster III transport aircraft and one Il-78MKI aerial refuelling tanker would depart from Bareilly AFS on Tuesday 25 June 2019.
                          I wonder if we will see them invited for the French national day parade in Paris

                          Edit:
                          Seems they already arrived 2 days ago (in Fr)
