Rare photo of the second production Alpha Jet at Farnborough Air Show. Assigned to the Centre d'Experimental Ariennes Militaries (CEAM), Armee de l’Air, based at Mont-de-Marsan. This aircraft was written off one week after this photo on 15 Sep 1978. It suffered double engine failure whilst on an assessment flight with an Egyptian Air Force officer aboard – both pilots ejected safely. The airframe was then used for ground instruction at Tours, France - last noted there in 2001.
