Evreux Air Base Veterans attend Air Show at their former base. The show featured the USAF Thunderbirds and the French Air Force Patrouille de France . The Thunderbirds last performed at Evreux in 1965. The 1965 Thunderbird team was also in attendance. Many thanks go to to Colonel Pascal Chiffoleau , the Commandant of Air Base 105 for the invitation and the Mayor and his deputies for the reception at the Hotel de Ville.

Col. Patrice Le Mao FAF (Ret) who along with Jeff Lambert and Jean Zabukovec treated all our vets to wonderful French hospitality on the Friday and Saturday prior to the Air Show. Jeff Lambert and Jean Zabukovec opened their homes to the visiting veterans and served most delicious French cuisine. Many thanks go to Patrice and to 317VG President Bill Lloyd who put in many hours of work to make the visit a memorable one. Click here and on the names above to view our photos.
