People get ready!
Out of the blue sky, the jet engines came roaring by, on the 6th of July.
I jumped up, stuck my head out the window at the office and started shooting (my camera), in an attempt to capture the fabulous adrenaline that comes from watching these incredible metal birds flying over Paris.
I only had one worried student call me, asking if there was something to worry about. But If I had been a random war vet tourist, not knowing what was happening, I may have been slightly worried too. For about 20 minutes, aircraft of all kinds were flying low over the city.
The military style parade takes place on the Champs Elysées July 14th, in the morning. It’ll be crowded so get there early if you want to see. It is also aired live on television.
Just a little jet practice for the 14th of July!
Allons enfants de la patrie, le jour de gloire est [presque] arrivé!!!
