Gallery: Rafale from C-160R (January 2010)
This report was made in January 2010. the French Air Force once more authorized a flight in a C-160R during a refueling exercise, this time with two Rafale Bs based at St.Dizier Air Base. It was cold and foggy on the ground. At flight level 130 (13000ft) it was very cold. Because of the cold and the reduced level of oxygen at this level a flight doctor was added to the crew in event hypoxia would occur. It wouldn't.
