The Channel islands and, soon, all the British islands

The Channel islands are closer to France than to England, and they form a universe unto themselves, both in landscape, a mixture of cliffs, beaches and English countryside, and in politics : they have been connected to the British Crown since 1204, but are not part of either England or of Europe. The purpose of this site is to use aerial photographs to help you discover not only Jersey and Guernsey, which are the best known islands, but also Alderney, the northernmost, Sark andHerm, the smallest, and the astonishing plateau of the Minquiers, which is often absent from maps.

La Patrouille de France

An aircraft, a pilot and a mechanic. The Patrouille de France is built on this indissociable threesome. The name of the pilot and the mechanic are painted in exactly the same way on their Alphajet fuselage. But the media mainly show the pilots´ job. During the Patrouille de France annual meeting I have spent 24 hours with the mechanics. Their work is impressive.
