A1017 GAF887 A319 1502 from Cologne one low approach then onto Chania
A1815 CTM2062 CN235 129 68-IL from Villacoublay departing on the 25th around 1615 after a night stop back to Villacoublay

25-04-2024 Thursday
A1024-D1600 CTM010 Falcon 7X F-RAFB from and to Paris serial from Adsb

With much local fan fare the first six Rafales arrived on delivery from Bordeaux, unfortunately bad weather meant the planned formation arrival was scaled back and all the jets were split up to perform individual ILS approaches. The lead jet Croatian Air Force 01 HRZ01 170 appeared first and made one flypast at 1230 and was then vectored out to the back of the line and landed last. So in landing order.

1233 HRZ02 150
1236 HRZ03 171
1239 HRZ04 151
1241 HRZ05 153
1243 HRZ06 152
1248 HRZ01 170 flypast first 1230

The six jets were held on the taxyway until they had all landed so they could taxy to the military ramp and awaiting dignitaries in style under a water arch provided by the fire service.

Sorry, can’t help with the other Mi-171, might possibly catch it test flying at some point once they finish working on it.

The first former Croatian An-32 to be delivered to Ukraine. It carried full Ukrainian markings with the shield, Emergency services badge and coded within their sequence. Interesting that after around 12 years in open storage apart from ground runs it left without doing a test flight first. On departure it did a vigorous wing waggle then a circuit of the airport as it climbed out and performed some checks. Once successfully complete it carried on direct to Ukraine.
