    The RAF's No. 3(F) Sqdn. dispatched two of its Eurofighter Typhoons from Coningsby to France to visit the Dassault Rafale 1/7 Sqdn. at the Saint-Dizier air base.

    The visit, which took place March 2-5, was part of a larger effort to cement French and British military ties after the two countries entered a long-term strategic partnership.

    A pilot exchange program between the two aircraft types is also planned this year.
