Spotting at Cannes #2

Cannes is also a place where there are a lot of interesting machines like this old Fouga (former plane used in the Patrouille de France before they switched to the Alpha Jet).

There are also a lot helicopters (it represents almost half of the traffic during summer period with a top of 45% during august).
