Greenpeace goes to war. An Air France Boeing 777 (registered F-GSPB) parked at Paris Charles de Gaulle has been partially painted in green by nine activists of the ecologist organisation on Friday morning.
The environmentalists managed to illegally penetrate the airport grounds and used ladders to climb the parked aircraft. The organisation says it wants to denounce ‘greenwashing’ by the French government.
Aeroports de Paris (ADP) said the activists got inside Charles de Gaulle airport by scaling a fence at the edge of the tarmac. They have been arrested for vandalising the jet.
A few hours later, Air France maintenance teams were already busy cleaning the plane.
