Sole airworthy Fouga CM.175 Zéphyr damaged in runway excursion in France

The world’s only airworthy Fouga CM.175 Zéphyr, a French naval jet trainer which first flew in 1959 and served until 1994, was damaged in a runway excursion on November 4. Nobody was hurt in the accident, but the right main gear struck an obstacle and the aircraft was damaged.

It has been established that the right wing will need to be replaced, and it is hoped that the right landing gear can be repaired. Zéphyr 28, which restored and operates the aircraft, hopes to be able to fly the aircraft again next year.
