To celebrate Airbus’ fiftieth birthday, the manufacturer started off with an amazing formation flight. Unfortunately, weather conditions didn’t allow for the Airbus family to perform a low pass at Toulouse Airport but still some exciting air to air footage with the famous Patrouille de France, the demonstration unit of the French Air Force. Boeing made for a great moment by congratulating its biggest competitor on the milestone (see video below).
