The association Breguet Alizé, which is mostly composed of former French Navy personnel, has been working for the last few months on restoring their Breguet Alizé ASW aircraft back to flying status.
Engine runs and taxiing tests began at the end of 2012 and the association has now received permission to make test flights with the aircraft.
The Alizé entered service in 1959 with the French Navy and served until 2000. To our knowledge, no Alizé is currently flying although several aircraft are preserved both in France and in India, the Alizé’s only export customer.
